Cannabis Reform: Criminal Expungement and Racial Disparity

DePaul University's Institute for Business and Professional Ethics, in partnership with the Center for Public Interest Law at the DePaul University College of Law will hold a lunchtime discussion to explore issues around cannabis reform, the expungement process and open avenues for entry into the now legalized cannabis economy.

The criminal expungement process is of particular interest, as the logistics, timetable and real-world impact become increasingly important with legislation coming into effect on January 1, 2020.

Guest speakers will be Majority Deputy Leader Representative Jehan Gordon-Booth (Illinois State Representative, 92nd District); Kristina Kaupa, policy advisor for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office; and Esther Franco-Payne, executive director of the Cabrini Green Legal Aid Clinic. Shaye Loughlin, Executive Director of the Center for Public Interest Law, will moderate.

Please RSVP by Friday, January 17, 2020. For any questions, please contact Summer Brown (

Tuesday, January 21 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm
