Virtual "Brown Bag Lunch" ...

Virtual "Brown Bag Lunch" – A Joint Session of the Cannabis and Barristers/Young Attorneys Sections


Are you a new or young lawyer, or law student, who is interested in an overview of your different career options within cannabis law? Would developing substantive cannabis expertise further your career by building your firm’s related practice group in the large and growing market that L.A. County represents?

This virtual brown bag event will feature a highly diverse panel of speakers from the LACBA Cannabis Section Executive Committee. These leading cannabis lawyers represent a broad variety of practice settings such as firm size, public vs. private sector, and geographic locations within L.A.

Join this friendly round table as an open-ended opportunity to ask questions and meet/talk with these esteemed panelists, begin or continue building key cannabis law relationships, learn about the recent partnership between LACBA and the city of Los Angeles to create the Cannabis Pro Bono Panel and consider applying, and hear about federal vs. state cannabis laws plus related ethical duties.

As a new or young lawyer, or law student, you do not want to miss this legacy opportunity to incorporate something edgy, cool, and fun into your current or future practice in the early stages of where we as a new legal generation and society are headed.
