Prof. Brandeis interviewed by Alaska Dispatch News about new marijuana law and the "Ravin Doctrine"

Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was interviewed for an article in the Alaska Dispatch News about the new marijuana law in Alaska.  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.
