Fashion Law 101: Legal Issues in the Fashion Industry

With Uduak Oduok, Esq.

Fashion Law is a rapidly emerging specialty area addressing the legal needs of the fashion industry. Indeed, there is no doubt that many in the fashion industry have a need for lawyers with actual industry experience who understand the unique issues the industry faces.

This seminar, taught by Ms. Uduak Oduok, an attorney with Ebitu Law Group, P.C., fashion industry insider and former model, and one of the few fashion lawyers in the country, starts with an introduction on what is fashion law and then delves into diverse areas of law that directly affect the industry. Ms. Uduak will discuss the following topics: Fashion & intellectual property law, Fashion & Social Media Law, Fashion & Employment/Labor Law, Fashion & Criminal Law, Fashion & International law and Fashion Trademark & Licensing.

The seminar will also give special attention to modeling agencies and models, fashion designers, fashion event production and fashion photographers. If you are in the fashion industry or regularly interact with the industry, this is one seminar you do not want to miss! Come with all of your questions!

PresenterUduak Oduok, Esq. has a passion for law and fashion, and an extensive experience as a trial lawyer litigating a wide variety of issues in both civil and criminal law; and almost two decades of first hand knowledge and experiences that are as diverse as they are deep in the fashion and entertainment industries (modeling, fashion retail, fashion production, public relations, journalism, and publishing).

She has counseled a range of clients from musicians, models, actors and actresses to designers on numerous areas of the law including contracts, business law, fashion and entertainment law, copyright, trademark and intellectual property law.

She is also the founder and publisher of Ladybrille Magazine, the first ever publication focused on bringing African fashion and entertainment to the Western masses, Ladybrille. In 2008, her effort was recognized with a feature in the prestigious American Bar Journal.
