Half Day Conference: Art Law: Recent Developments

What to expect at the conference

5 Stone Buildings is holding a half-day conference to consider and discuss the development of art law in light of recent decisions in the field.

Art and cultural property is an area in which 5 Stone Buildings has always been, and continues to be, particularly strong and can justifiably lay claim to being the leading set of chambers in the field.  Our members have appeared in many of the leading cases over recent years.  Led by Henry Legge KC, a pre-eminent practitioner in the field, the conference will address issues faced by professionals and how the law has and may continue to develop.

The conference will be followed by drinks.
