Dear Fashionentlaw readers,

I am excited to inform you all that I have been named Adjunct Law Professor at Loyola Marrymount University in Los Angeles (“Loyola”) and will join the esteemed faculty at Loyola, in Spring 2014, to teach the first course, ever, in California on ‘Fashion Modeling Law.’

As a former fashion model and one that has had diverse experiences in the industry for over two decades now, I am excited to bring the legal issues that confront both the fashion modeling agency and the fashion model alike to the forefront.

I am excited and can’t wait to impart the knowledge I have to the next crop of brilliant legal minds at Loyola.

Please see the course description below and spread the word!

Cheers,
Uduak

FASHION MODELING LAW
(4F58) – 2 UNITSThis course is designed for students interested in representing the fashion client in the modeling industry. Specifically, the course looks at the fashion model and the modeling agency, with emphasis placed on the fashion model. We explore the legal issues the fashion model is confronted with during three key phases of her career: breaking into the industry, establishing her career and finally exiting/expanding into other business ventures.

Necessarily, as part of these key phases we explore the legal structure of modeling agencies as business entities, modeling agency contracts, employment status of models i.e. independent contractors v. employees, weight issues, intellectual property issues affecting models, photographers and the agency relationship, and a whole host of pertinent legal issues the fashion model confronts in the industry. A basic knowledge of contract law, torts and civil procedure is advised for the student taking this course.”
