The Journal of Law & Health at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will sponsor "The Cannabis Conundrum: A Symposium on Legalizing Medical Cannabis in Ohio" to explore the legal, social, medical and practical aspects of medical cannabis legislation. 

Ohio 7th District State Representative Kenny Yuko has introduced House Bill 478, which would legalize in Ohio the use, growth and dispensing of medical cannabis for persons suffering from debilitating conditions including cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and Crohn's disease. House Bill 478 is not unlike other medical cannabis laws passed either through legislation or by referendum around the country. Medical cannabis is legal in Michigan, which provides an intriguing opportunity to see how medical cannabis legislation works in the Midwest.

The symposium will feature Ohio State Representative Kenny Yuko, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law professor Stephen Lazarus, Cleveland Clinic physician Mellar Davis, Michigan physician Jamie Hall, and Michigan attorney Michael Komorn. The participants will discuss the implications of legalizing cannabis in Ohio, as well as the effects of Michigan's Medical Marijuana Act and its impact in that state.

Criminal Justice Forum III: Domestic Violence and Self Defense

CLE credit: 
1 free
Weight:

Speakers/Special Guests: 

Donna K. Coker
Professor of Law
University of Miami School of Law

The Story of Wanrow: The Reasonable Woman and the Law of Self-Defense

Professor Donna Coker, a nationally recognized expert in domestic violence law and policy, will discuss the case of State v. Wanrow, which is frequently cited as the first "women's self-defense" case. In 1973, Yvonne Wanrow was convicted of second degree murder for killing a man who had attempted to molest her son. The Supreme Court of Washington reversed her conviction in a ground-breaking opinion in which the court held that the jury instructions violated Wanrow's right to equal protection of the law by using language that suggested Wanrow's conduct should be measured against a reasonable man standard. In her lecture, Professor Coker will explore the issues of gender and mens rea in the context of this seminal case.

Coker is a Professor of Law at the University of Miami School of Law. Her widely respected scholarship focuses on three major areas: the connection between economic vulnerability and domestic violence; restorative justice and other alternative criminal justice interventions; and gender and criminal law doctrine.

Professor Coker has a J.D. from Stanford Law School, and an M.S.W. from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Before entering law school, she worked in the domestic violence field for ten years.
