Rutgers Law School will launch a six-month Certificate in Cannabis Law and Business in January 2023, the school announced Tuesday.
The noncredit program will provide business owners with a thorough grounding in the rules and regulations of New Jersey’s cannabis industry as they pertain to every aspect of running a business, ensuring that people entering the market have the information they need to run legally compliant businesses.
This is the first program that Rutgers Law School has developed to support participants who are not J.D. students or legal professionals. The curriculum has been developed specifically for New Jersey’s legal cannabis industry, making it highly specific to the needs of the local community.
The program will feature expert faculty from across Rutgers Law School, Rutgers School of Business-Camden, Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and Rutgers School of Communication and Information, alongside industry experts and guest speakers.
Rutgers Law School co-Deans Kimberly Mutcherson and Rose Cuison-Villazor said the program meets the needs of the day.
