The Fashion Law Project is where branding, law and fashion design meet


Fashion is a $300 billion industry in the U.S., and in Los Angeles the fashion industry alone generates $58.2 billion in revenue through 168,400 jobs in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, surpassing New York annually in revenue since 1998.

With these stats in mind, Loyola Law School, which is surrounded by over 10,000 fashion companies, is currently hosting its The Fashion Law Project‘s Fashion Law Summer Intensive course going on now through August 1.


The weeklong program targets lawyers, designers, design students, fashion entrepreneurs and executives and focuses on the fundamentals of fashion law as well as the legal and business components of brand building.

Look at some of the sessions being covered:

• How to Launch A Fashion Line
• Intellectual Property Considerations in Fashion
• Ins & Outs of Fashion Importing & Exporting
• Advertising and Social Media Legal Considerations
• Fashion Mergers and Acquisitions
• Creating Brand DNA in Fashion: Building Strategy & Key Considerations
• Incorporating Celebrities into Fashion Campaigns: Use of TV and Film

The program’s faculty includes an alumna of the program, Staci Jennifer Riordan, who is also the executive director of The Fashion Law Project and partner and chair of the Fashion Law Practice Group at Fox Rothschild LLP; Adjunct Professor Deborah Greaves, a former general counsel of True Religion Brand and other top practitioners; fashion industry professionals; and branding experts.

Scheduled lecturers are top executives in the fashion branding and fashion law industry. We’re talking a launch cocktail party with some in LA’s burgeoning fashion community, field trips to LA fashion landmarks and ample opportunity to explore LA on your own.  And to accommodate working professionals, weekday classes will be held in the evening.

It can’t get any more fabulous than this, folks.

And participants are awarded a certificate at the end of the session, along with continuing legal education credits.

If you missed out this round, keep your eyes peeled to register next time for the $3,000  program which also offers generous scholarships of up to $2,000 off to some students.
