Art Law: Stolen Art Panel Tomorrow Night At Fordham Law

The Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal and the Fordham Art Law Society Present:

Defining Cultural Ownership: Shifting Focus, Shifting Norms

In this panel discussion, attorneys whose practices focus on art law will speak on issues of repatriation and restitution -- specifically, how the legal process of returning looted works of art to their countries of origin is informed by the works' genre and surrounding cultural norms. The discussion will follow the legal system's treatment of looted art from various eras, including Antiquity, the Second World War, and the more recent Cuban Revolution.
