Prof. Brandeis appears in illustrated history of marijuana in Alaska published in The Atlantic

Cartoon panel from The Atlantic article showing Prof. Brandeis
commenting on individual rights and state constitutions.
Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was interviewed by Josh Kramer of The Atlantic magazine about Irwin Ravin and the history of marijuana in Alaska.  Kramer's article is done in cartoon panel style and features several panels of Prof. Brandeis.

The article quotes extensively from Prof. Brandeis' Alaska Law Review article,
"The Continuing Vitality of Ravin v. State: Alaskans Still Have a Constitutional Right to Possess Marijuana in the Privacy of Their Homes,"  published in the December 2012 issue of the Alaska Law Review.

Prof. Brandeis teaches courses on American government, constitutional law and civil liberties, and is a frequent speaker on constitutional law and other legal issues. Prof. Brandeis also maintains a private law practice through which he provided legal representation in administrative agency proceedings for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
