Diploma in Law and Collections Management – Wellington, New Zealand 2024

June 4 - June 7

Diligent management of collections and claims is vital to museum professionals. No project can be secure unless museum staff know how to predict and mitigate legal conflict. 

The risk of such conflict hangs over the entire field of museum activity from acquisitions to loans to de-accessions, and is becoming more common throughout the global museum community. In all these areas of museum practice there is a rising demand for realistic training in hands-on legal management.

To respond to these demands, ARC and the Institute of Art and Law (IAL) provide training to museum administrators and officials, offering expertise in the legal issues of collections management.

Registration for the Diploma in Law and Collections Management (DipLCM) requires no pre-existing knowledge of law. This training program will focus on the practical and pragmatic use of legal tools to improve the running and development of museums, their collections and their collaborative exhibition programs. Legal rules and resources will be examined, not in terms of abstract theory, but in terms of what they mean to everyday museum management, how they can be used and what they can do for the museum community.
