The primary issues that arise in cultural heritage disputes involve title, authentication and VARA (Visual Artists Rights Act). Resolving these disputes through arbitration instead of litigation can be less expensive and quicker. In addition, the arbitral decision-maker can be an expert in the particular subject—much less likely in court, and the confidentiality of arbitration can protect the players and the cultural heritage at stake.

This 80-minute recorded webinar reviews the benefits, primary considerations—legal and non-legal, and best practices for drafting arbitration clauses for cultural heritage disputes and arbitrating cultural heritage disputes.

Topics include:

  • The benefits of arbitration over litigation in cultural heritage disputes.
  • Suggestions for tailoring arbitration clauses for maximum benefit to a particular cultural entity.
  • The resolution options available through arbitration.
  • A review of AAA Rules applicable to cultural heritage arbitrations.


Who Should Attend? Domestic and international attorneys, arbitrators, mediators, educators, corporate counsel, business people or government agencies involved in the arts, museum, or antiquities fields.


This program does not qualify for the AAA's annual Arbitrator Continuing Education (ACE) requirement.
