Art & Cultural Heritage Law Certificate Program

The Art & Cultural Heritage Law Certificate Program is taught and hosted by Georgetown Law.

Artistic Freedom Initiative is proud to announce our second annual certificate program in Art & Cultural Heritage Law, hosted and taught by Georgetown Law. This unique program builds upon AFI’s ongoing work championing not only at-risk artists but the preservation and conservation of all forms of art and culture. This year’s virtual course will explore the intersection of law, art, and cultural heritage, and will include modules that spotlight Latin America. The program is designed for both lawyers and arts and culture workers. 


The certificate program builds on last year's syllabus, covering a diverse range of interrelated topics, including but not limited to:

  • International human rights and cultural heritage law 
  • Extraterritorial protection of art and cultural property
  • The international movement and restitution of cultural artifacts
  • The resolution of disputes related to cultural material
