Once upon a time, Fashion Law was an obscure concept. Now, it is fast becoming not only a recognized practice area but quite competitive. There are a lot more legal professionals and law students alike interested in the field and many fashion law conferences springing up around the country. We also now have two recognized fashion law institutes both in the West and East Coast respectively.
For you the future law student wanting to be a fashion lawyer or current lawyer looking to finally pursue your passion for fashion and the law, it is time to roll your sleeves and really learn what fashion lawyers do, and of course earn MCLE credits, which is always a good thing.
Here are my top 6 Noteworthy fashion law conferences to attend this 2014.

By the way, the New York City Bar has had, for many years now, a Fashion Law conference of its own. When I was looking to rub fashion law minds with fellow fashion law practitioners and obtain more best practices information, the NY City Bar was where I turned to, back in 2006, during the inauguration of the conference.
