The art market has woven itself into our daily lives in many respects.

The media are replete with incisive reports on international art exhibits, the prices of works, the activities of major art dealers and news from art fairs around the world.

The art sector stimulates international competition through the work of artists, art dealers, museum directors, curators, auction houses and lawyers.

The legal issues associated with the art market are numerous, and concern contracts between artists and art dealers, the international sale of works of art, the functioning of auction houses, property disputes and litigation concerning the authenticity of artworks, and international restitution claims.

Art Law also involves other legal fields such as public and private international law, property law, insurance, tax law and criminal law. ?

The main focus of this Commission is to examine the developing field of Art Law and to represent specialised Art Lawyers throughout the world.
