In light of the Maguire Center’s conference on the Ethics of Collecting Antiquities last year, some of you may be interested in an upcoming law conference on October 16:

DePaul University College of Law
Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law and the
Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT??) present:
8th Annual Symposium:
Acquiring and Maintaining Collections of Cultural Objects: Challenges Confronting American Museums in the 21st Century
Museums face increasingly difficult challenges in collecting cultural objects-challenges that must be dealt with in ways that are consistent with best practices. On October 16, 2008, DePaul University College of Law will hold a major conference where leading experts will examine the basic rules of nonprofit museum governance and how those rules apply to the growing challenge of collecting cultural property in light of new laws, court decisions and professional ethical guidelines; evolving museum practices and standards in collecting antiquities; sovereign immunity and immunity of art works; and the need for further standards for donor/collector museum relationships.
