Dear NORML Supporter in Colorado:
The 2012 NORML Aspen Legal Seminar is scheduled for Thursday, May 31; Friday, June 1; and Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the Gant Hotel in beautiful Aspen, CO. Details of the program and the registration information are now available on the NORML website:
For those who may have friends or colleagues who would enjoy this Rocky Mountain weekend, at this seminar we also permit interested non-lawyers to register and attend at a reduced rate.
The legal seminar will consist of three days of lectures from leading criminal defense attorneys from across the country. The first day will consist of lectures on using evidence of betrayal of trust to move your judge or jury (Majorie Russell, Lansing, MI); federal preemption/dual sovereignty (William Panzer, San Francisco, CA); defending paraphernalia and spice (K-2) cases (Robert Vaughn, Nashville, TN); and medical marijuana in the workplace (Daniel Grow, Kalamazoo, MI).
The second day will feature lectures on using the latest and best science to beat a DUID marijuana prosecution (NORML Deputy Director Paul Armentano); what every criminal defense attorney should know about 1983 actions (Matt Kumin, San Francisco, CA); challenging knock and talk searches (Norm Kent, Ft. Lauderdale, FL); and jury selection in a marijuana case (Abe Hutt, Denver, CO).
The Saturday program will consist of lectures on the latest important federal and state court decisions (Gerry Goldstein, San Antonio, TX); drug dogs and highway interdiction (David Michael, San Francisco, CA); Internet research, investigation and computer security (Jerri Merritt, Denver, CO); and drug and other specialized court standards (Hal Haddon, Denver, CO).
Check out the agenda here:
This legal seminar will be approved for CLE credit by all states that require attorneys to obtain continuing legal education credits on an ongoing basis.
Those who have joined us at previous Aspen legal seminars will be pleased to know that we will once again be holding a benefit dinner on Saturday evening at the lovely home of Chris and Gerry Goldstein, catered by celebrated Aspen chef Chris Lanter from Cache Cache, a popular Aspen restaurant.
The Gant Hotel has provided NORML with a special block of rooms at a reduced rate ($165 for one bedroom unit; $185 for two bedroom unit). Be sure to mention the 'NORML legal seminar' when you call to reserve a room: http://www.gantaspen.com
Don't delay, register today and plan to join us for what has become an annual event -- a lovely long weekend in the Rocky Mountains with like-minded friends and colleagues. Rooms at The Gant, seminar registrations and socials are all limited in space, so don't procrastinate because this unique event will sell out quickly!
