The law library has a new resource available designed to help researchers navigate international legislation and case law regarding the acquisition and ownership of artwork.
Art Law & Cultural Property from the International Foundation for Art Research contains resources and information covering legislation that governs the export and ownership of cultural property from dozens of countries with primarily a European focus. Additionally, it covers case law and hard-to-find out of court settlement documents pertaining to art ownership issues in the United States.
The database is available to all Cornell students, faculty, and staff both on and off campus with the link given above.
The Law Library is pleased to announce that it now has four additional laptops (total of six) available for students, faculty and staff to borrow.
