Rutgers Law School recently established a certification program for New Jersey cannabis business owners to provide legal guidance for properly maintaining their businesses in an emerging market.
The non-J.D. program titled "Certificate in Cannabis Law and Business," is a six-month hybrid course for cannabis license holders and interested entrepreneurs. University faculty specializing in cannabis rules and regulations will teach the coursework.
Minority Cannabis Academy Co-Founder Brendon Robinson said Black and brown people are not represented properly in the industry.
“Whether it be from a C suite level, entrepreneur level, or even an entry-level position, we want to come out and do our best to kind of help folks get ingratiated into the industry,” said Robinson.
Rutgers Law School’s Certificate in Cannabis Law and Business is a six-month program that ensures people entering the market have the information they need to run legally-compliant businesses.
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.
