University of Denver
As the marijuana business becomes legal, colleges offering courses in the industry are following.
The University of Denver also introduced a class for medical marijuana in the recent past. While Anne Arundel Community College focuses on business classes that educate students on marijuana, the University of Denver has their new marijuana class offered through their law school. The Denver Post stated that the class, titled “Representing the Marijuana Client,” was full after just a few days and it now has a long waiting list for the following semester.
The course listing at the University of Denver website promises that the course will “investigate the challenges associated with representing marijuana clients. Topics covered will include regulatory compliance, criminal defense, contract, banking, tax, real estate, and multidisciplinary practice.” It will also cover state and federal laws governing marijuana and gives students a chance to listen to the experiences of marijuana businesspeople as well as the lawyers they have hired to represent them in court.
