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].
