Description:

Intensive Study: Selected Legal Issues – Cannabis Law

There have been few changes in Canadian legislation that will impact as many areas of the law as the legalization of cannabis for recreational use.

This course, sponsored by Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall LLP/s.r.l., will survey the many areas of the law impacted by this unprecedented change and will examine the regulatory framework of cannabis in Canada in respect of both medical and recreational use, and production. In addition, the course will explore some of the potential legal implications of legalization, including with respect to employment/labour law, property law, immigration law and business law.

The course will feature a variety of guest lecturers and instructors from Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall LLP/s.r.l. in addition to a visit to Canopy Growth in Smith Falls.
