Description of Organization:

The Art Law Society was launched in 2021 with the mission to facilitate conversations among art law students, practitioners, and artists by hosting a variety of lectures and panel presentations. Our hope is to provide a forum at SCU Law for the discussion of a depth of art law topics. In addition, the Art Law Society plans to organize tours of local museums, galleries, and auction houses to immerse students in California’s vibrant art scene.
