April 3, 2019

Stephanie Carr (Associate-Louisville) was selected as a 2019 Writer in Residence for Ms. JD and will issue monthly blogs over the coming year for her column titled “Going Green: Growing a Cannabis Law Practice.” Following recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and with a majority of states having legalized recreational and/or medicinal marijuana, our Kentucky girl is going green to explore legal opportunities in the field of cannabis law.

Ms. JD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the success of aspiring and women lawyers in the early stages of their careers. Founded in 2006, Ms. JD tackles work-life balance issues, gender inequalities and hurdles in the legal profession through multiple programs, including the Writers in Residence opportunity to serve as a guest blogger for one year and attend Ms. JD events. Ms. JD has been included in the ABA Journal’s list of the top 100 law blogs, and in 2014 it was inducted into the “Blawg Hall of Fame,” which includes blogs that will always be among the ABA Journal’s favorites.
