About Art Antiquity and Law

This new HeinOnline current content journal, published by the Institute of Art & Law, is designed for all who value the cultural and historical environment.

The principal aim of Art Antiquity and Law is to inform those who work in the art and antiquity world about the law governing their activities and the policies behind the law. The journal addresses the role law plays in shaping cultural policy. To understand law, however demanding the task, is to meet its challenges more effectively.

Art Antiquity and Law is designed for people who work in areas other than law, as well as for legal practitioners. Many articles are written by non-lawyers who have particular experience in applying or reforming the law. Art Antiquity and Law is accessible to collectors, auction houses and market consultants, archaeologists, developers, investors, anthropologists, fund managers, insurers and loss adjusters, solicitors and barristers, university lawyers, local authorities, museum officers, art historians, tax advisers, owners of historic properties and cultural policy advisers. In addition to the incredible journal content, several books on this topic are included in the current content database.

Art Antiquity and Law is also available in the Law Journal Library with a three-year embargo.
