In-House Training Courses

The Institute of Art and Law offers bespoke in-house training courses for museums, auction houses, law firms and insurance companies. The training courses can last one, two or three days and are led by experienced professionals in the field. This will help your organisation gain
relevant expertise in this very complex area. Upon completion, attendees will receive an IAL
Certificate. Note: we now offer these training sessions online.


Topics cover the essential areas of law that affect the day-to-day practice of professionals in this
field including:
● Acquisition
● Ownership
● Loans
● Gifts
● Intellectual property
● Imports and exports
● Immunity from seizure
● Restitution or repatriation


The IAL has run successful in-house courses for the Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Museum and the Southbank Centre in London, National Museums Liverpool, Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, the University of Oxford Museums and Qatar Museums in Doha, Qatar.
