Overview

Why You Should Attend

California's permanent regulations have been released and other states already have active, regulated markets and many more are following suit.  If you are considering serving cannabis clients or already do so, this is a must-attend program on legal and business basics. You will learn about the legal landscape in the cannabis industry, the regulatory framework that supports legal, commercial transactions in the cannabis industry, and how to best serve your current or prospective clients as they seek to enter or grow within this emerging legal industry. 

What You Will Learn  

You will get an excellent overview of how the licensing and regulatory system is set up in California. Then you'll take a deeper dive into navigating that system so that you can counsel clients on company and product/services development, compliance, infrastructure and growth.  Our faculty will explain the intellectual property landscape and provide information on how an industry that is still federally unlawful can develop a deep and protectable intellectual property portfolio. Finally, our faculty will tackle important topics that will support any practice: what disputes look like in this industry, how they are handled and best resolved; ethical considerations; and finish with a compare and contrast to the wine industry. 

Who Should Attend

Any attorney who is or plans to serve a cannabis client. Any regulatory compliance attorney serving any industry.
