Course Description
The University of Miami School of Law offers a 3-credit course in International Cultural Heritage Law in cooperation with the Art Law Centre of the University of Geneva June 18-29, 2018, in Geneva. The course, conducted in English, is available to students at the University of Miami School of Law and other ABA-accredited law schools only by application. University of Miami Law's Stephen K. Urice, Professor of Law and Director of the Arts Law Track at the law school, oversees and evaluates students from U.M. and other ABA-accredited law schools. 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.
