Students start law society for fashion, design

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A group of second-year law students at Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis who have a passion for fashion and the arts have created a new law society after not being able to find an outlet to express their passions for those subjects. Fashion, Art, and Design law society president Courtney Lopez started the organization with fellow students Erin Albert, Kathryn Miller, and Nicole Estes because they found few attorneys who specialized in these areas. They figured there would be a lot of interest in developing this type of society.

The first callout meeting for the FAD law society is at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 11 in Room 245 in the law school. The society is seeking outside counsel and art, design, or fashion experts as pro bono advisors. The society also wants to hold fundraisers, social, and educational events that blend their interests.

For more information on the FAD law society or to advise the group as a legal, or art and design professional, e-mail fad@iupui.edu.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
