This seminar will explore and analyze the intersection of law with art and culture. Topics will include U.S. and international law as they relate to the illicit trade in antiquities and Nazi-era looting and restitution. We also will examine aspects of law pertaining to museums, artist's rights, art merchants, auction houses, and dealers, as well as issues regarding authenticity, title, and the statute of limitations. Materials will be provided regarding underwater cultural heritage and indigenous cultural concerns. Guest lecturers from the art and cultural property community will provide their unique perspectives.
