Emily A. Burns
Emily became passionate about pursuing a legal career in the cannabis industry after taking a Marijuana Law and Policy course during law school, taught by leading marijuana law scholar, Professor Robert Mikos. Emily soon began assisting Professor Mikos with writing a first-of-its-kind casebook on Marijuana Law, Policy, and Authority, acquiring in-depth knowledge of the various state regulations governing cannabis consumers, producers, and other third-parties. In addition to having expert knowledge of the complex legal issues presented by conflicting federal-state marijuana laws, Emily is also involved in marijuana policy reform efforts at the federal level. By incorporating her knowledge of marijuana policy with her understanding of the legal and regulatory environment, Emily is able to anticipate and identify potential legal concerns ex-ante.
Over the past two years, Emily has worked with a diverse range of individuals and entities in both the public and private sector, including bankers associations, federal policymakers, and state regulatory agencies. She has researched and written on a wide range of legal issues related to legalization, ranging from the availability of intellectual property rights in the cannabis industry, to employment law protections for cannabis consumers, and the First Amendment implications of marketing and advertising restrictions. Emily is currently completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Maryland School of Law, focusing on marijuana law and policy issues in the context of public health.
Emily received her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School, where she was an Honors Scholar.
