We are excited to announce that the Institute of Art and Law, in collaboration with the Australasian Registrars Committee, will be running two of its most popular courses in Australia this year in July.

Diploma in Law and Collections Management

The five-day Diploma in Law and Collections Management course will run in Melbourne from 8 to 12 July 2019 at the offices of Clyde & Co LLP.

This course is tailored to museum personnel who want to learn more about the legal issues that arise in museum management on a daily basis. The key emphasis will be on the practical and pragmatic use of legal tools to improve the running and development of museums, their collections and their collaborative exhibition programmes. This course is designed for museum administrators and officials, and other arts professionals, and requires no pre-existing knowledge of the law.

A Collection Manager from Museums Australia who participated on the course said, “The course was amazing. I’m very grateful for the presenters and their knowledge. The subject matter was broad and interesting.”

Diploma in Intellectual Property and Collections

A new version of our Diploma in Intellectual Property and Collections will run for the first time this year in Sydney on 17, 18 and 19 July 2019 at the University of Sydney Museum.

This course will introduce the basics of intellectual property (IP) and show the importance of IP rights in collections management and other activities in the cultural sector. The course will cover copyright, exceptions such as fair dealing, moral rights, digital rights management and other forms of IP. The course will offer necessary training in hands-on IP management. No pre-existing knowledge of the law is required.

A previous participant on our London programme said the course was, “Very informative and helpful in my day-to-day job.” (Rights and Images Sales Executive, National Maritime Museum)
