University of York launches LLM in Art Law

This new Master of Laws program will be taught jointly by specialists from York Law School and the Department of History of Art, and has evolved as a result of the massive growth in global art trade - now estimated to be worth over ¢45 billion.

Research Skills and Method
Legal Systems: Sources & Operation
Art: A Problematic Life Cycle 
Art: Commodity or Valuable
Law and Art: Parallel Perspectives 

Students will also choose one module from the Department of History of Art, and examples of modules include:
