Amidst the Spring/Summer 2016 runway shows (see a look from Proenza Schouler's collection above), New York Law School unveiled the Innovation Center for Law and Technology, which will serve as a forum for law students, legal practitioners, entrepreneurs and tech users to learn about, shape, lead, and benefit from the innovation economy. It hopes to be a focal point for New York City to study and work on complex issues and opportunities presented by the growing innovation economy. Focus areas include intellectual property, privacy, cybersecurity, fashion law, sports law, and entrepreneurship. Professor Ari Ezra Waldman will serve as the Director of the Innovation Center and lead several of its signature programs.
The Fashion Law Initiative, which falls under the Innovation Center for Law and Technology umbrella, aims to bring together a team of faculty members with a combined total of more than 50 years of fashion law experience. The Institute will educate the next generation of lawyers in the growth field of fashion law. It combines NYLS’s award-winning practice-based learning classes, doctrinal courses, mentorship, and public education and networking events, among many more opportunities. The Fashion Law Initiative will be led by Adjunct Professor Joseph Forgione.
