This course is Part I in our annual series of Art Law for Art World Professionals courses. It addresses important areas such as auction and private sales, due diligence, agency and relationships, taxation, copyright and other intellectual property issues, artists’ agreements, and international and cultural art law. It is directed towards non-lawyers working in the art world or wishing to do so, as well as lawyers from other disciplines. Part II is due to start in autumn 2019. Each part is independent of the other, but can also complement each other.
