CannaLaw is NYU Law's first student organization dedicated exclusively to the cannabis industry. Our mission is to leverage NYU's student talent to build a more responsible, equitable, and socially conscious cannabis industry, providing students with the tools and resources necessary to excel in and positively impact the space.
We intend to create a truly unique, cross-institutional cannabis network here at NYU, working alongside our sister organization at NYU Stern, CannaBusiness, to hold joint law and business initiatives, networking events, career panels, and education opportunities for students. We will establish NYU Law's first recruiting pipeline into the cannabis industry, finally bridging the gap between students seeking employment or internship opportunities and companies in the space seeking qualified and responsible legal talent. Additionally, we will offer legal services where students can assist individuals previously convicted of marijuana crimes get clemency for their offenses and expunge their criminal records.
