Fashion Law Degree

Fashion Law Degree

A fashion law degree?! Yes, it will now be a real thing.

Fordham Law School has announced that it will offer the world’s first degree in fashion law, starting this fall.
The program is backed and partially financed by Diane von Furstenberg, who has been a longtime advocate for legal reform in the industry. She’s kind of the ideal proponent for Fordham’s new program, right? The curriculum will cover topics like fashion financing, Modeling law, fashion licensing, and sustainability.

So, could this mean greater security and stricter regulation within the fashion industry?
In our opinion, we see this only as a good thing!

    Great idea. In the UK every industry is heavily regulated and this protects people in profession as well as clients. Fashion should not be an exception. And imagine all those stylish lawyers :)

  • I’m a corporate lawyer and I’ve always been interested in fashion law. I could definitely see myself transitioning from tech to fashion sometime in the future. It’s great that Fordham is offering this specialization.

    This is very interesting. I think this is a great thing for up and coming lawyers who have a passion for fashion and a passion for politics. I think this is great!

  • This is great that there is a degree for Fashion Law. Fashion is a huge industry with different types of people who need lawyers and I believe that having a lawyer that’s not just a generic lawyer, but a lawyer that understands the industry and is willing to study up on the rights of models, retail owners, brands, magazine owners, manufacturers, suppliers, etc. There are so many regulations, laws, taxes and so on that deal with this business that it’s good to have someone who will specifically concentrate on getting a degree for it.
