INCBA @ NCIA: CLE for Lawyers

The International Cannabis Bar Association (INCBA) with us in San Jose, presenting a minimum of six* hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) for the fifth year running. This year, attendees of the Cannabis Law Rounds are in for something special: with California’s final regulations coming on line this year, we will be examining each stop in the vertical chain of commerce to examine regulations and pain points for each license type, including those faced by cultivators, manufactures, distributors, delivery services, other retail spaces, and more. Each panel includes a regulator pertinent to the topic, and will look and will compare and contrast the issues that each license types faces from the perspective of multiple jurisdictions, often using California to compare and contrast different state-level approaches. See Agenda

International Cannabis Bar Association

INCBA’s program consists of high-quality legal education presented by expert attorneys at the top of their respective fields. Our program content is wide-ranging, relevant, and addresses everything from the foundation of the cannabis movement to the most topical issues affecting clients in all aspects of the cannabis industry. We provide information the cannabis bar must be fluent in about the critical issues that affect industry clients. The NCIA Cannabis Business Summit in San Jose (July 22nd), as the second set of courses in our inperson educational arc, INCBA will focus on the startup issues that most commonly face our clients. Clients initially approach their counsel to form their business, appropriately structure their enterprise, identify and procure rights to real estate, tackle state licensing and regulatory issues, obtaining insurance, protecting their intellectual property, and for help in virtually every aspect of initiating a cannabis business. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, we will also do a deep dive into hemp issues.
