Legal knowledge and practice for fashion
4th Edition

Managing Fashion & Luxury companies requires a deep understanding of the legal framework that is characterizing the core internal processes of the companies, as well as the relations with clients and other external parties. Thanks to the participation of both academics and industry insiders, the "Fashion Law" course will focus on the introduction of the main fashion business models and the processes of collection and product development, in order to concentrate on the key industry-based legal issues from a practical point of view:

- brand protection and different typologies of trademarks' protection, as well as other intellectual property rights that can be used to protect fashion creations and models;

- fashion negotiation and specific agreements for the industry;

- supply chain issues: from advertising to the digital fashion processes;

- the “made in” discipline, the crime issues such as brands and products counterfeiting and fashion forgery.

The course will be constantly carried out with practical cases (litigations, contacts, benchmarks and simulations with managers and lawyers of the fashion industry) and concluded with final mock trials. The setting is Milan, the Italian and European fashion capital, combining together fashion companies and legal offices supporting the industry.
