LAW 203 - Art Law Seminar.


While some “art specific” laws exist at the state and federal level, the practice of art law frequently involves application of other areas of law – contract, property, tort, and constitutional law - to the relationships, rights, transactions and disputes among collectors, artists, dealers, auction houses, museums and other art world participants.  The course will provide students with a general introduction “art law”, including defining art and cultural property; artist’s legal rights (copyright, First Amendment, resale royalty rights, and censorship); the international trade of art and measures to limit that trade; authenticity and ownership disputes; the fate of art works in wartime; repatriation of art and antiquities; laws protecting flora and fauna that are sometimes used in art; and other topics. Two hours. Monaghan
