Course Introduction

The programme will draw upon the expertise of existing members of CCLS staff and direct the focus of this expertise towards the legal aspects of doing business in the art world. CCLS members of staff will team up with IAL instructors (who are practitioners in this field) to offer an exciting and innovative approach to learning. Internationally recognised, IAL delivers, through its educational and publishing programmes, a depth of knowledge unrivalled elsewhere.

The programme is held in the heart of London, the second largest art market in the world. As part of the programme we organise visits and discussions at some of the most influential art establishments in the UK. In previous years this has included: Visit to the British Museum for a discussion and Q&A with the museum's legal counsel, along with a tour from IAL highlighting legal issues with collection items; Visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum for a discussion and Q&A with the museum's legal counsel, along with a tour highlighting legal issues with collection items; Visit to the Tate Britain for a discussion and Q&A with the museum's head of IP, along with a tour from IAL highlighting legal issues with collection items; Visit to auction house Bonham's with a presentation and Q&A from senior staff.
