Courtauld Law Society

The Courtauld Institute Law Society aims to facilitate exploration into the fascinating and continually evolving intersection of art and law.
The society is geared both at those interested in pursuing law after their BA, as well as those of you who think you might have a passing interest in the subject.


Past events included speakers from The Art Loss Register, Collyer Bristow, Simmons and Simmons, and Hogarth Chambers. Last year we hosted over several weeks the formally certificated ‘Introduction to Art Law Course’ led by barrister Stephanie Wickenden, as well as
three other events with speakers from the Institute for Art & Law, Mischcon de Reya and Constantine Cannon.


From September 2016 we are offering the Diploma in Art Profession and Law Ethics (DipAPLE), an intensive, interactive course from the prestigious Institute of Art and Law designed to introduce both art professionals and lawyers to the specific legal risks and safeguards that underpin all art transactions; the course has been redesigned from it’s usual format specifically for Courtauld Law Society members.

All other events for 2016-2017 will be as posted on our new website
