Fordham Law School and Fashion Law Institute Launch World’s First Fashion Law Degrees

In a news conference held Monday, June 22, Fordham Law School, the Fashion Law Institute, and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA) President Diane von Furstenberg announced the launch of the world’s first academic degrees in fashion law.

The new degrees—a M.S.L. (Master of Studies in Law) for non-lawyers, and LL.M. (Master of Laws) for lawyers—follow the establishment, less than a decade ago, of the first fashion law course by Professor Susan Scafidi, which created the field.

In 2010, with the support of the CFDA, the Fashion Law Institute was established. Today, fashion law is no longer a new trend but an integral part of the business of fashion. For more, visit the story on the Law School’s webpage.
