Interested in fashion law? Here's a 1-day course which comes with a 10% discount for IPKat readers

Fashion law is a very important and fast-developing area of the law, which has been attracting increasing interest at all levels, including businesses, law firms, and research and educational institutions.

The IPKat is happy to support a new initiative by fellow Kat Rosie Burbidge, Giulia Gasparin (River Island) and myself to provide initially a 1-day course devoted to exploring some of the key areas within fashion law. This is part of a new project called 'Fashion Law London' [you can explore the website here].

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
