LAW 6103

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course surveys some of the wide range of topics loosely grouped under the heading "Art Law," including cultural heritage. We will begin with problems in defining art and cultural heritage for legal purposes. Among the subsequent topics covered are artists' rights (free expression, copyright, moral rights, etc.), institutional matters ranging from museums (their structures and missions) to art merchants (e.g., auction houses), problems concerning authenticity and quality, cultural heritage and war, cultural heritage in the international context (including the problem of theft in the international movement of cultural objects; the role of museums). Required materials will be a casebook and readings to be handed out. The materials range from cases and statutes to non-legal essays.
