2nd-Annual Fashion Law Summer Intensive

The second-annual installment of Loyola Law School’s Fashion Law Summer Intensive program will focus on constructing a brand narrative and all the legal elements necessary to carry that story forward. The program, part of  The Fashion Law Project, will run from July 23-31, 2015 on Loyola’s downtown LA campus. The week long program – geared toward lawyers, designers, design students, fashion entrepreneurs and executives – will focus on the fundamentals of fashion law as well as the legal and business components of connecting beyond the commodity. Details, including full schedule, speaker roster and testimonial video, are available at www.lls.edu/flsi.

“This year’s Fashion Law Summer Intensive is going to provide the legal and business framework for students to create and maintain a compelling story arc for their brands – whether upstart or established,” said alumna Staci Jennifer Riordan, executive director of The Fashion Law Project and partner and chair of the Nixon Peabody Fashion Law Practice Group. “Our students will walk away with skills that allow them to stand out from their peers.”

Faculty will include Riordan; Adjunct Professor Deborah Greaves, former general counsel of True Religion Brand; other top practitioners; fashion industry professionals; and branding experts. The recently announced faculty roster includes other masters of the field: Ellie Altshuler, Nixon Peabody LLP; Oliver S. Bajracharya, Christie Parker Hale; Brian Brookey, Tucker Ellis LLP; Rick Horwitch, Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services; Michael G. Lushing, Lushing Realty Advisors; Ilse Metchek, President, California Fashion Association; Jared Nixon, Shark Branding, Inc.; Julian Petty, Nixon Peabody LLP; and Aaron Renfro, Call & Jensen.

The program will begin with an overview of fashion law so participants share a common knowledge and will then immerse students into the nuts and bolts of brand narrative and building. Notably, the program will include a clinical component where students work through a hypothetical branding case study. Classes include Intro to Storytelling, Advertising & Social Media Legal Considerations, Launching a Fashion Line & the Fashion Cycle. To accommodate working professionals, weekday classes will be held in the evening. Participants will be awarded a certificate of completion at a graduation ceremony at the conclusion of the program on Saturday, August 1. MCLE credit is available.
Program activities will include field trips to LA fashion landmarks. Participants will have ample opportunity to explore LA on their own. Learn more about the program and register at www.lls.edu/flsi. Members of the media who wish to attend should contact Brian Costello, assistant director of marketing & communications, at 213-736-1444 or brian.costello@lls.edu.
