The John Marshall Law School Fashion Law Society is excited to present Start-Up Design: A Legal Presentation for Fashion Focused Business. The event has been organized in the hopes of equipping current and potential business owners in the fashion industry with the knowledge necessary to protect their interests and take their ideas to the next level.
The event is directed towards businesses in the fashion industry, but is open to anyone interested in learning more about this niche, including designers or those wishing to open a retail shop.
The John Marshall Fashion Law Society is the first Fashion Law Society in the Midwest.
