Fashion is a $300 billion industry in the United States—even more on a global scale. Join the Federal Bar Association for a high-energy conference focused on the unique legal issues affecting this economic giant. Legal professionals and industry representatives will explore practice areas including labeling regulation, ethical sourcing of labor, anti-counterfeiting, antitrust issues, e-commerce, and mobile apps.
The Fashion Law Conference is the finest opportunity to examine such industry-related regulations and licensing models to ensure the integrity and legitimacy of diamond and gold supply chains. Conference panelists will also evaluate the role of United Nations peacekeepers in monitoring mining sites to clamp down on unlawful practices.
Attendees will gain insight into how governments effectively share import and export data with oversight from global partners. Tiffany & Co., Susan Scafidi, the Federal Trade Commission, and the International Labor Rights Forum will review how we can change the rules of engagement, including implementing and enforcing stricter child labor laws while using international sanctions to curb the custom of trading conflict jewels.
The Federal Bar Association’s Fashion Law Conference is a meaningful next step in the important process of analyzing how to promote ethically sourced materials for diamonds and gold while appraising the need to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Sign up today for the Federal Bar Association’s Fashion Law Conference!
