Fashion Law Summer Intensive

July 28, 2016 - August 5, 2016 

Pinterest. Twitter. Snapchat. Facebook. WeChat. Vine. Tumblr. How do you ensure that your brand is part of the conversation on every fashionable channel? Go viral! Find out how to do this within legal confines -- and more -- at the third-annual installment of the Fashion Law Summer Intensive Program hosted by The Fashion Law Project at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. It will offer two pods: one providing an intense foundation in the legal elements of growing and maintaining a fashion brand, and a second providing an exploration in the law behind viral marketing for fashion.

This program is designed for students in the fashion industry, practicing lawyers and fashion industry professionals seeking to develop and deepen their understanding of the relationship between the law and the business of fashion.

Staci Jennier Riordan, chair of the Nixon Peabody Fashion Law Practice Group and Loyola Law School Professor, along with Deborah Greaves, of Counsel to the law firm of Ezra Brutzkus Gubner LLP and a Loyola Fashion Law School Professor, as well as other fashion law attorneys and industry specialists, will be teaching the many topics covered in this nine-day program.

A certificate of completion will be awarded at the program's graduation ceremony. MCLE credit is available.  Loyola Law School, Los Angeles is a State Bar MCLE-approved provider.

Portions of this course will be available remotely by live-stream and download. Class sessions included in video stream will be Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30 for $1,500. MCLE credit (16 hours) is available. Click here for more information.
