Save the Date- Pearlstein White Paper to Be Subject of Symposium at Cardozo School of Law
The Committee for Cultural Policy and the Cardozo Arts and Entertainment Law Journal (AELJ) will be hosting a symposium at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City on April 10, 2014 at 2 pm. Tentatively titled, Reform of U.S. Cultural Property Policy: Accountability, Transparency, and Legal Certainty, the event is a response to the forthcoming publication by William Pearlstein, A Proposal to Reform U.S. Law and Policy Relating to the International Exchange of Cultural Property, being published in AELJ’s Volume 32, Issue 2.
To continue to receive updates on the event and the final publication or have further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peter Tompa has collected ancient coins for thirty years. He has written and lectured about cultural property issues for a decade. He is a contributor to a chapter on numismatics in K. Fitz Gibbon ed., "Who Owns the Past?" (Rutgers 2005). He has lobbied members of the U.S. Congress and the Executive Branch in an effort to ensure that the small businesses of the numismatic trade receive fair treatment from federal regulators. He currently serves as a board member of the Cultural Policy Research Institute and the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild. He also has been a vice-chair of the American Bar Association's Art & Cultural Heritage Law Committee. His advocacy has received notice in the media, including the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Art Newspaper and the Voice of America.
