Center for Art Law

At the crossroads of visual arts and the law.


Here is what people are saying about the Center for Art Law:

“The Center for Art Law furthers a very important mission, because the art world is suffering from little transparency at the moment. Artists, galleries, and museums may be tainted with criminal activities, and the Center keeps people aware of what is happening.”

~ Renato Danese | President, DANESE / COREY gallery.

“The Center has provided me with a chance to foster my budding enthusiasm for art, museums and the law. As an intern I get to dig deeper into topics that interest me by writing articles, attend numerous talks by art world and legal professionals, and meet so many people with careers that I aspire towards.”

~ Jennie Nadel, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, MA Art Business 2020 | Intern, Summer 2018 and Spring 2019.

“Through my internship, I have met with a great many attorneys who have generously provided me with nuggets of wisdom and advice to guide my aspirations of becoming an art lawyer.”

~ Timothy Chung, Columbia Law School, J.D. 2021 | Legal Intern, Summer 2019.

“It has been my pleasure to work at the Center for Art Law with like-minded students, meeting fascinating and accomplished artists and attorneys.”

~ Laurel Salisbury, Duke Law School, J.D. 2021 | Legal Intern, Summer 2019.

“The Center for Art Law is one of the best resources in the art law industry for the in-depth analysis of significant developments, review of books/publications and informative presentations. The Center’s written content is top-quality, well-researched, informative, relevant and timely. The Center and its founder, Irina Tarsis, are known to put together excellent educational seminars on a wide range of topics from artists’ rights to cultural repatriation.”

~ Jana Farmer, Wilson Elser, Partner and art law practitioner | Center for Art Law Advisor.

“Art law is such a vast and diverse area of law and in one semester I was able to learn so much working at the Center for Art Law.”

~ Mia Guttmann, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, J.D. 2020 | Legal intern, Spring 2019.
