Fashion Law Bootcamp

Welcome to Bootcamp! The Fashion Law Institute’s unique annual Summer Intensive Program, fondly known as Fashion Law Bootcamp® and now in its 8th year, is your opportunity to experience the newly defined field of fashion law outside of the regular law school curriculum.

The next New York edition of Fashion Law Bootcamp is scheduled to take place from May 29-June 2, 2017, and it will introduce you to the substance of style, with emphasis on current business and legal issues involving the global fashion industry. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet industry insiders who serve as program faculty at additional events.

The program is run by Professor Scafidi, Founder and Academic Director of the Institute, who pioneered the field of fashion law. She is the first professor to create a course in the area and is internationally recognized for her expertise. The program will also include guest lecturers from the fashion industry.

Fashion Law Bootcamp® is open to lawyers, fashion industry professionals, law students, and others in the U.S. and abroad who are interested in broadening their knowledge of the law and business of fashion. The program is an excellent way for fashion industry professionals to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the legal issues that they deal with on a regular basis, or for practicing lawyers to expand their current practice or even jump start a change in career. Individuals who have not yet had academic or practical exposure to the law and business of fashion, including design students and other undergraduates entering their final year of study, are eligible to apply but must have a demonstrated scholastic aptitude and willingness to take on the challenge of studying legal materials.
