In our first panel, we will explore the modern landscape of medical marijuana, its legalization status, and potential public health concerns. Then, we will analyze the intersection of technological advancements, such as advancements in the legal standards surrounding electronic health records, gun control, and social media, and how these topics affect the law generally.

Environmental Law Society Event: "After the Fire"

CLE credit: 
2.0 hours pending
Weight: 
-10

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Cuyahoga River Fire, when a passing train sent sparks into the oil slicked river, igniting a blaze on June 22, 1969 that would go down in history as one of the worst environmental crises in Ohio's history. 

Cleveland's environmental past has a story worth telling — Although it's had its trials, the community has triumphed over environmental injustice. Today, the Cuyahoga River is one of the healthiest waterways in the state. Parks have reclaimed abandoned, polluted land. And wildlife has returned in abundance. But there's still a lot of work for the community to do to revitalize the city and landscape. 

On April 17, join the Ohio Environmental Council and the Cleveland-Marshall Environmental Law Society for After the Fire: A Path Toward Environmental Restoration of Cleveland's Neighborhoods. Featuring Dr. Jonathan Wlasiuk (Michigan State University), Kyle Baker (Senior Assistant Council, Cleveland Metroparks), and Jocelyn Travis (Ready for 100), After the Fire will help law students and attorneys engage with issues of environmental injustice throughout Cleveland and beyond.

After the Fire will provide two hours of CLE credit, pending Supreme Court approval. This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will also be provided with the program. Please make sure to register by April 10, 2019.
