Institute of Art and Law Events in New York and London

The Institute of Art and Law will be putting together a panel in New York on art recovery and later a “Study Forum” on Art and Antiquities Law in London. Both are highly recommended, and well-worth the small fees. Here are the details:

New York – 16th November
New Dimensions in Art Recovery –
a joint conference
convened by IAL and Herrick Feinstein LLP
Claims against possessors of art continue to proliferate. The impulse to unravel transactions in stolen art has inspired new legal maneuvers and defenses. While museums are obvious front-line defendants, the legal risks and ethical pressures also affect private collectors, governments, recovery agencies and insurers. They also provide unprecedented opportunities for claimants.
The aim of this seminar is to inform practicing lawyers and museum staff about initiatives that are being taken to diversify the practice of art recovery in a trans-Atlantic context. Eminent practitioners from the US and the UK will report on  approaches to litigation within each jurisdiction to highlight the differences and similarities between them.
London, Saturday 26th November 2011
At this Study Forum a panel of specialised speakers will examine aspects of the law relating to art and antiquities, including criminal law (theft, handling, money laundering, the Dealing in Cultural Objects (Offences) Act), contract (formation, exclusion and limitation clauses), international conventions.

  1. In some real estate properties that I saw recently, one of the major things I noticed is them having a good collection of art and antiquities of these properties. In a Texas MCE before, where I had joined, we had been tackling the same too and that what can we do to help about this issue and problem.
