Panel I - Social Media Influencers
Social media influencer marketing has become an integral component of many fashion brands' overall marketing strategy. While the power of influencer marketing is undeniable, brands must still be mindful of the potential legal and PR pitfalls involved with using influencers. How can brands and influencers create authentic and effective content while complying with applicable laws and regulations and maintaining consumer trust?

NYSBA's Fashion Law Committee invites you to attend its annual panel for a lively discussion with industry attorneys and influencers as they discuss a range of topics surrounding influencer marketing, including best practices, FTC regulations and enforcement, contract negotiations and recent cases.

Moderator: Sarah Robertson, Esq., Partner, Dorsey & Whitney LLP

Panel II - Sexual Harassment/Assault
In this #MeToo era, the fashion industry continues to grapple with issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault that some argue have long plagued the industry. Please join the Fashion Law Committee for a timely and engaging discussion that will explore the ways industry stakeholders are tackling these issues from a legal, policy and organizational perspective. Hear industry insiders, attorneys and advocates discuss employer obligations and best practices, legal protections available to employees and independent contractors, recent legislative and policy initiatives and the impact the recent scandals have had on the fashion industry.

Newly Admitted Attorneys: To receive skills credit, newly admitted attorneys must take accredited transitional CLE courses in traditional live classroom settings that have been approved by the CLE Board for use by newly admitted attorneys. For more information about the CLE Rules, please go to www.nycourts.gov/Attorneys/CLE.

Out of State Accreditation: This program has also been approved for MCLE credit by the State Bar of California, the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board and the Board of Continuing Legal Education of the State of New Jersey. If you require MCLE credit in other states, we can provide you a Uniform MCLE Form.

Partial Credit for Program Segments Not Allowed: Under the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board Regulations and Guidelines, attendees at CLE programs cannot get MCLE credit for a program segment (typically, a lecture or panel, of which there are usually several in a program) unless they are present for the entire segment. Those who arrive late, depart early, or are absent for any portion of the program WILL NOT receive credit for that program segment.
