First-of-its-kind title addresses the law, policy, and governmental authority surrounding marijuana
NEW YORK, July 6, 2017 -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.'s Legal Education business unit today announced it has published Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority, the first law school casebook focused on this rapidly emerging new practice area.
Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority is authored by Vanderbilt Law School professor Robert A. Mikos, an internationally renowned expert recognized as one of America's premier authorities on marijuana law. The casebook is an accessible, comprehensive, and engaging guide to law, policy and authority issues surrounding three categories of regulated parties: marijuana users, their suppliers, and the third parties who interact with them.
"At Wolters Kluwer Legal Education, we pride ourselves on helping new fields of legal education coalesce through the publication of early, trendsetting casebooks," said Vikram Savkar, General Manager. "Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority is an exciting new reflection of this commitment."
While Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority is written in a style familiar to law students, it is also accessible to a broader audience, including graduate and upper-level undergraduate students in courses in policy studies, political science, and criminology.
"Professor Mikos' book makes a valuable contribution to the small but burgeoning body of work on marijuana law," said Mark Osbeck, Clinical Professor of Law, University of Michigan School of Law. "It will prove helpful to law students wanting to gain a comprehensive understanding of the legal and policy issues concerning marijuana use in the United States."
The Legal Education Group within Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. is the leader in providing content, developing learning solutions, and advancing thought leadership in the field of legal education. As a principal provider of market-leading digital and print textbooks and study aids for almost fifty years, the group is leading the way in the innovation of legal education content.
"Drawing upon Professor Mikos' extensive experience in marijuana law and policy, this new book will help law schools nationwide crystallize a common approach to teaching a new, rapidly evolving, and highly sought-after discipline, and contribute to a fact-based public dialogue on this hot-button issue," said Savkar.
