Legal and Ethical Problems in Art Restitution (4 April 2008)

4 April 2008

2008 Spring Meeting, New York, NY

American Bar Association Section of International Law

This roundtable will explore legal and ethical issues implicated by claims for restitution of art.  Litigation of such claims is on the rise, which may indicate a decreasing willingness for compromise in this area with little black-letter law.  Practitioners will discuss the defense, claimant, and auction house perspectives, while academics analyze recent trends.  The focus is settlement and resolution emphasizing how legal defenses, such as statutes of limitation, and moral issues should be rectified.
