“Fashion Law Week (FLW) is seeking interns for fall 2012 and spring 2013 to assist in the planning and coordination of FLW 2013. FLW is a weeklong conference that was created at the Howard University School of Law in 2010. It is the first event of its kind in the nation bringing together lawyers, designers, bloggers, manufacturers, policy makers, academics, fashion enthusiasts and others to explore the intersections between fashion, law, and commerce.
Interns will be unpaid; however, through your participation you will undoubtedly gain invaluable learning experiences, in addition to building your resume and networking with heavy weights in the fashion industry and legal profession. FLW may provide letters of recommendation to worthy participants.
