I’m so excited to share Cannabis Law Basics for Lawyers. This course is designed to introduce attorneys, law students, and curious minds to the fundamentals and opportunities of this emerging industry. Think of it as Cannabis Law 101 that didn’t quite make it into your law school curriculum.
Join for the live webinar on Tuesday, August 7th at 1:00PM MT (3pm ET). For $75, you’ll receive:
Brief history of the legal status of marijuana in the U.S.
It’s a long and tumultuous history, so I’ll be sharing the important highlights from the initial prohibition of marijuana use and sales, and the legal implications for cannabis law.
Snapshot of the current legalization status
While cannabis is still federally outlawed, the changes in legalization vary from state to state. We’ll walk through the differences between medicinal and recreational legalizations, and touch on which states are currently being affected (spoiler: they are all, just in different ways – more on this in the course).
Overview of legal services you can offer
With the growth in the cannabis industry, more businesses and entrepreneurs are looking for legal counsel in setting up a business that is compliant with state and local regulations and policies. Additionally, the budding cannabis industry effects various aspects of life and law. You do not have to be a business attorney to work with the cannabis industry! Cannabis legalization involves taxes, real estate, family law, criminal defense, estate planning, health law, dispute resolution, bankruptcy, and more. I’ll discuss the different services you can offer, how they benefit your clients, and how they’ll benefit you!
Recommendations on next steps to grow your legal offerings
With this introductory content under your belt, I’ll explain how you can expand your firm or pivot the focus to incorporate cannabis law – just like I did. I’ll share my insights, lessons learned, and recommendations on how to do so successfully.
