The global trade in art is now a multi-billion dollar industry. In this growing and evolving market, the need for experts to negotiate, defend, analyse and understand the art world is ever more apparent.
Art law is an exciting and fast-developing area, tackling issues surrounding the legal treatment of fine art and cultural heritage. Our LLM in Art Law is a unique collaborative and interdisciplinary course, co-taught by academic specialists from York Law School and the Department of History of Art.
You'll gain a deep understanding of the complex legal, artistic, social and ethical issues in the art world and learn essential skills of analysis and negotiation.
A wide range of networking opportunities and masterclasses - in addition to a compulsory field trip - means you'll gain practical, in-depth knowledge of the field, invaluable for careers in the trade or further academic study.
