This program, Ethical Concerns for Cannabis Attorneys, will cover conflicts with federal law, the interplay between MRPC 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 1.13, 1.18, 2.1, 5.1, 5.5, and 8.4 and cannabis, state variation on ethical rules, criminal law considerations, ethical considerations with owning cannabis businesses, and securing licenses vs. enforcing rights of licenses. 

The program will take a special look at how Maine’s Ethics Commission has addressed two main ethical concerns cannabis attorneys face: whether attorneys are permitted to advise clients on behavior dealing with marijuana and whether attorneys are permitted to provide services beyond giving legal advice to clients. Maine’s approach acts as a case study examining the development of the Ethics Commission’s approach to, and rules on practicing law in the cannabis industry.
