Brian Z. Ning

Law Clerk

Brian joined Green Wise Legal as a law clerk in 2018 gaining invaluable experience into the always-evolving cannabis industry and is sitting for the California Bar Exam in July 2019 after which he will continue with the firm as an Associate Attorney. He comes from a political and policy background, having worked for a State Senator and in the Governor’s Office.

Brian first entered the cannabis industry in the summer of 2017, when he worked for the Drug Policy Alliance researching model cannabis laws and the impacts of cannabis prohibition on disproportionately affected people and communities. Prior to entering law school, Brian worked as a tutor with C2 Education, helping struggling students obtain improved standardized test scores and admission into college. Brian has also interned for various government agencies to learn the "behind-the-scenes" of policy formation.
