Southern University Law Center, Ag Center set to host cannabis education symposium
As the cannabis legalization topic evolves, the Southern University Law Center’s Cannabis Compliance, Law and Policy Institute, in partnership with the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center, wants to continue the conversation during their upcoming Cannabis and Hemp Continuing Education Symposium taking place on December 12 and 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Southern University Law Center.
“Cannabis (marijuana) has been legalized in at least 33 states in some form,” said Marla Dickerson, director of the Cannabis Compliance, Law and Policy Institute. “The state legalizations have led to a myriad of discussions pertaining to decriminalization, social equity, legal, and medical issues. The symposium will provide panel discussions that will provide understanding to individuals interested in cannabis.”
The two-day symposium will feature panel discussions on the state’s hemp program, diversity within the marijuana industry, cultivation processes, labor and employment issues and more. Panelists will include leading industry researchers and general counsel such as Evan Gibbs, employment litigator at Troutman Sanders; Sue Taylor, founder and chief executive officer of iCANN Berkeley; Blake Bilger, co-founder of Cypress Hemp; Hilary St. Jean, attorney at Rogoway Law Group and more.
The Cannabis Compliance, Law and Policy Institute seeks to promote education, research, and understanding of the issues pertaining to the cannabis industry.
The event registration is $225 and it is open to the public. Participants can register and view a list of sessions at www.sulc.edu/cannabis. For legal professionals, the symposium carries 12.83 continuing legal education credits including one hour each of professionalism and ethics.
