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. I'm not sure what's more depressing: the fact that people would pay $35,000 per year to attend an unaccredited law school, or the fact that the same people "are hanging in there and willing to follow the dean’s lead in going forward" after the same school fails to gain accreditation, rendering their $70,000 and counting education worthless. Maybe it's a good thing these people can't sit for the bar.

  2. Such is not uncommon on law school startups. Students and faculty should tap Bruce Green, city attorney of Lufkin, Texas. He led a group of studnets and faculty and sued the ABA as a law student. He knows the ropes, has advised other law school startups. Very astute and principled attorney of unpopular clients, at least in his past, before Lufkin tapped him to run their show.

  3. Not that having the appellate records on Odyssey won't be welcome or useful, but I would rather they first bring in the stray counties that aren't yet connected on the trial court level.

  4. Aristotle said 350 bc: "The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of an modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

  5. Oh yes, lifetime tenure. The Founders gave that to the federal judges .... at that time no federal district courts existed .... so we are talking the Supreme Court justices only in context ....so that they could rule against traditional marriage and for the other pet projects of the sixties generation. Right. Hmmmm, but I must admit, there is something from that time frame that seems to recommend itself in this context ..... on yes, from a document the Founders penned in 1776: " He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."
