Cardozo FAME Center Presents: Legal Aspects of the Jewelry Industry

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017, 6:00-8:30 p.m., 3rd Floor Lounge at Cardozo Law School

Join the FAME Center and the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (“JVC”) for a discussion on the legal aspects of the jewelry industry.

With a sole focus on legal compliance and ethical guidance, the JVC, a 100-year old non-profit trade association, has a record of keeping industry players out of court and in tune with the law. Cecilia Gardner, the JVC’s General Counsel, President and CEO, along with Sara Yood, Senior Counsel, and various jewelry industry attorneys will discuss the common issues that face jewelry retailers, wholesalers and other industry players.

The discussion will cover topics such as the Kimberley Process, which has nearly eliminated conflict diamonds from U.S. commerce, and the FTC Guides, which require certain disclosures related to the sale of jewelry and precious metals.

Attorneys may receive 1.5 transitional/non-transitional CLE credits for attendance, in the “Areas of Professional Practice” category. 

Please RSVP to Miya Owens at by March 3, 2017.
