California Bar approves CannaLaw seminars

Posted on June 3rd, 2010 by Global Ganja Report and tagged , , .

CaliforniaCalifornia's new Cannabis Law Institute has become the first marijuana law education group to be certified by the State Bar as a "Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) Multiple Activity Provider" and is authorized to offer official California MCLE credit for legal education activities. Only a handful of spots are left in their first 75-person seminar, to be held June 5 at the Hilton Sonoma for $420 a head.

CLI co-founder and noted San Francisco defense attorney Omar Figueroa said another seminar is planned for Los Angeles October 30, followed by one in San Francisco.

Figueroa says State Bar approval "was surprisingly easy. They've been fantastically cooperative. the writing is on the wall. The fact that they issued the certification with our name I think signals a cultural change. The taboo against marijuana or even the concept is eroding quickly."  (Legalization Nation, May 28)
