Summer 2017
LAW602  A  CULTURAL PROPERTY & HERITAGE

Course Description
The University of Miami School of Law will offer a 3-credit course in International Cultural Heritage Law in cooperation with the Art Law Centre of the University of Geneva June 12-23, 2017, in Geneva. The course is available to students at the University of Miami School of Law and other ABA-accredited law schools only by application, described below. The course will be conducted in English.

Cultural Property Law (LAW602) will develop students’ awareness and general understanding of the primary legal issues of international cultural property and art law: the trade in cultural goods, the restitution of stolen/looted art and antiquities, the protection of cultural property and built heritage from natural and human-induced disasters and during armed conflict, and others. Additionally, the course will explore cultural property law’s complex relationship with fields such as public and private international law, human rights law, intellectual property law, and alternative dispute resolution. Students enrolled in the course for credit will be required to complete a research project or to sit for an examination, at the discretion of the professor.
