Introduction To Museum Law J-Term Course 2021/2022
Museums must comply with a myriad of laws regulating virtually every aspect of their organization and operation. While some of these laws apply to businesses in general, some apply to nonprofit charitable organizations of all kinds, and others are unique to the museum community. This course will provide an overview of museum law, including a discussion of issues relating to museum organization and governance; museum personal and facilities; museum intellectual property, collections management and cultural property; and funding for museums. Students will gain a working knowledge of how a variety of basic legal concepts arise in the museum setting. This course will provide a foundation on which to pursue a career working for and with museums.
This will be a Hy-Flex course consisting of an introductory Zoom meeting (for law students only); six in-person/synchronous-remote classes; a graded research paper (for law students only), and an optional in-person/synchronous-remote paper presentation meeting.
