Did a designer copy someone else’s design or logo? Did a designer use an exact copy of an established pattern? Fashion law is definitely a hot legal topic, which arises more than one may think. For those who are interested in broadening their knowledge of the law and business of fashion, the annual Fashion Law Bootcamp is here in San Francisco!
This year, Fashion Law Institute has partnered with Levi Strauss & Co. for the West Coast edition of the Fashion Law Bootcamp. Opened to fashion students, industry professionals and designers, this intensive two-week summer program covers current business and legal issues involving the global fashion industry. It’s an excellent opportunity for fashion people to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the legal issues that they could face on a regular basis.
Here’re some of the covered topics:
- Intellectual property
- Business and finance
- International trade and government regulation
- Consumer culture and civil rights
- Sustainability and green fashion
- Import/export regulations
- Licensing agreements
- Fashion financing
Any plans for this summer? Go check out the Fashion Law Bootcamp! Participants will explore diverse areas that affect the fashion industry, plus an opportunity to meet the industry insiders.
