We hosted another Fashion Law Institute pop-up clinic
We hosted a Fordham Fashion Law Institute pop-up clinic last Friday, November 15. Pro bono services were provided to aspiring fashion designers and entrepreneurs who needed advice/assistance with a range of issues, including corporate formation, patents, trademarks, copyrights, and rights of publicity, among other issues. As part of the pop-up clinic, we hosted a luncheon during which Richard Plaistowe of the Mills & Reeve firm in the UK gave a presentation on the potential impact of Brexit on fashion companies.
The Fashion Law Institute was launched at the Fordham University School of Law in 2010 by Professor Susan Scafidi with the generous support of Diane von Furstenberg and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. This was our fifth consecutive year hosting a Fashion Law Institute pop-up clinic.
