The Fashion Law Society at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law is dedicated to promoting an understanding of the unique legal contexts of fashion law, and its intersections with corporate, labor, communications, IP, entertainment, and human rights domains. From Mexx Canada filing for bankruptcy protection to the recent collapse of a Joe Fresh textile factory in Bangladesh, Canadian fashion law has a huge media presence: as a growing field of study, it requires legal expertise from a variety of contexts. The Fashion Law Society’s mandate is to enable students interested in fashion law to network with legal professionals working in the industry. We hold a panel event for members to attend, where fashion law experts give their advice on industry trends, employment, labor issues and their own experiences with the numerous legal issues facing the fashion industry.

The Fashion Law Society actively recruits general members, as well as executives dealing with social media management and event planning.  If you are interested in joining the club or applying for a position, please email one of our co-presidents below.


2017/18 executive members have not been elected yet. Check back in September for new contact information.
