Few institutions are as reliably at the forefront of issues of cultural property law as the DePaul University School of Law in Chicago. Not surprisingly, they have another terrific event coming up. I’ll be at the street art CLE I am giving at the New York City Bar Association, but otherwise I would make every effort to be there and I encourage anyone interested to do the same. The presenters are experts and luminaries of the highest order.
Topics: Thomas R. Kline, Lori Breslauer, Alessandro Chechi, Rebecca Tsosie, DePaul University College of Law, Events, Patty Gerstenblith, Human Rights and Cultural Heritage, Karima E. Bennoune, Lubna S. El-Gendi, Stacey Jessiman de Nanteuil, Sarah Dávila-Ruhaak

The Appraisers Association of America is hosting its annual Art Law Day on November 8, 2013 at the Kimmel Center at NYU. The schedule, from the event page, is below. This is always a content-packed and thought-provoking day. They keynote address about legislation for authentication experts should be fascinating, and is particularly timely. See you there!
