On Thursday, May 17 and Friday May 18, the offices of Duane Morris LLP will host the NYC Cannabis Law Summit. On Thursday, the content and presentations will focus on legalization through legislation. They will discuss both medical cannabis and adult recreational use programs. On Friday the 18th, the presentations will focus on providing a cannabis law primer. Topics will range from intellectual property, employment and finance to insurance and ethics.

This event doubles as both an opportunity to learn more about cannabis, as well as a chance for legal professionals to earn CLE. These credits are available to those in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Costs range from $599 for both days and 13.0 CLE to just $149 to attend the first day of the event.

One factor that makes this event stand out is the wonderful assortment of women and people of color in the speaker roster. Shanel Lindsay (Ardent Cannabis), Dr. Bernie Lee, Amol Sinha and Shanita Penny (Minority Cannabis Business Association) are all listed as program hosts.

We’ve definitely covered Shaleen Title, the Commissioner of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, before. In fact, she’s written some incredible articles for Ladybud in the past. As the co-founder of THC Staffing Group and a passionate activist, she is making waves on the East Coast and all over the world. As the Keynote Speaker, she will deliver what is sure to be a fascinating and educational presentation.

Those close to New York may want to consider attending this incredible educational event. Even those who don’t work in law will find the content about the blossoming legal cannabis industry fascinating and valuable.
