When it comes to the law, you probably have several questions. Maybe it’s how intellectual property works, what to look for in a contract or the proper way to set up your business? If you are an emerging designer, illustrator or any type of fashion professional, you are invited to sign up for the Fashion Law Institute’s Pop-Up Clinic. Their monthly sessions were developed to provide assistance by matching professionals with a volunteer attorney to help guide you through your legal needs and questions. Based in New York, the clinic is open to all across the country and while they focus on U.S. jurisdiction, they welcome international designers. Meetings take place in person or via conference call depending on the location of the individual.
For those that want to learn more about fashion law, they also offer a summer bootcamp program. This intensive that will immerse participants into fashion law and offer a forum for networking and provide a broader knowledge of the industry. Some of the topics covered include: licensing agreements, sustainability and green fashion, counterfeiting and import and export regulations. The program is open to fashion law students, lawyers and industry professionals in and outside of the United States.
