CLL Hosts First Virtual Fashion Pop-Up Clinic
We hosted our first virtual Fashion Law Institute pop-up clinic of the year on Friday, September 25 and it was a great success. We provided pro bono services to aspiring fashion designers and entrepreneurs who needed advice with a range of issues, including corporate formation, contracts, trademarks, copyrights, and rights of publicity, among other issues. Students from Fordham Law School participated in the clinic together with our attorneys.
Many thanks to our CLL attorney volunteers -- Dasha Chestukhin, Allison Furnari, Simon Gerson, Robert Giordanella, Justin Karasick, Meichelle MacGregor, Raphael Nemes, Joel Karni Schmidt, George Sciarrino, Emily Stein, and Lyndsey Waddington.
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 sixth consecutive year hosting a Fashion Law Institute pop-up clinic.
