Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This primer offers a very easy to read discussion of the legal matters that museums may face and the laws that they follow. Everything from "orphaned works" to international exhibition issues to donor forms to the most common legal problems museum face. The book also offers a number of samples from other museum's collection policies as well as general templates to build off of and learn what basic information a museum should/can include. Additionally, real-life and hypothetical case examples are seamlessly given to help develop critical thinking and apply what you have learned. I highly recommend it.

Detailed, thorough, and educational. The book looks at the important legal concerns faced by museums like non-profit status, legal title to objects, and cultural heritage concerns. The legal precedents for important topics are explained and the footnotes give references to plenty more cases to expand upon.
