The Arts Law Colloquium, facilitated by Professors Patty Gerstenblith and Margit Livingston, features lunchtime presentations by attorneys, government officials, and academics who are leading experts in the areas of art, museum, cultural heritage, music, theater, film and media law. The Arts Law Colloquium helps advance CAMCHL's mission of enhancing awareness and understanding of art, museum and cultural heritage law issues by exposing students, lawyers and other professionals to the myriad legal issues encountered by experts who practice in these fields. These lunchtime presentations also help give students, practicing attorneys and other professionals practical insights into the day-to-day tasks and duties faced by the experts who practice in these complex legal fields.
