Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was a presenter at the National Business Institute (NBI) seminar, "Marijuana Business Law in Alaska," held in Anchorage on December 9, 2016.
He presented "Federal Responses to Alaska Marijuana Law" which explained the relationship between state and federal marijuana laws and discussed possible changes to federal marijuana law and policy under a new presidential administration. Prof. Brandeis also gave a presentation titled "Alaska Attorney Ethics and Marijuana Legalization" which covered topics such as marijuana and the Rules of Professional Conduct, attorney use of cannabis products, and attorney ownership of cannabis businesses.
Prof. Brandeis teaches courses on the American legal system, constitutional law, and civil liberties, and is a frequent speaker on constitutional law and other legal topics. Prof. Brandeis also maintains a private law practice through which he advises clients on marijuana law and policy questions. This law practice preceded this presentation, and included providing legal services to the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
