Student Legal and Mediation Services at Portland State University proudly presents a discussion on Oregon Marijuana Law featuring Portland-area attorney Leland Berger.

He assisted in drafting the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act and has also worked on its implementation, including impact litigation. His practice includes non-cannabis related criminal defense state court trial work, along with a broad array of appellate work. He also occasionally assists in the pro bono representation of people arrested during protests. He is a frequent lecturer on legal issues relating the defense of medical cannabis patients and has spoken on these issues at Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association Continuing Legal Education Programs, at a National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Annual Conference, and at the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws Legal Committees Annual Conference.
