Fordham Law School has announced that, beginning this fall, it will launch an LL.M. program in Fashion Law.
The program will cover a number of fundamental topics in fashion law, including intellectual property, business and finance, international trade and government regulation, and consumer culture and civil rights.
Some of the courses—including ones focused on fashion financing and fashion modeling law—will be taught by "fashion insiders," according to a statement from the school.
Although some schools offer specialized courses in fashion law, often as part of specializations in intellectual property, the Fordham program is most likely the first degree to offer an official specialization in the field.
The LL.M. is aimed at those who already have a degree in law.
Also this fall, Fordham will launch a new specialization in Fashion as part of its Master of Studies in Law (MSL) program. This specialization is aimed at non-lawyers who need to understand how law affects the business of fashion.
Applications for both programs are now open. Students can matriculate either in the spring or the fall, and the programs are offered in both full- and part-time flavors.
