Masterclass: 101 Legal Things Every Museum Worker Needs to Know [Past Event]
Tue 13 Jun, 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Facilitated by Ian McDonald, Special Counsel, Simpsons Solicitors, this masterclass will cover a number of the legal and ethical issues that museums face from time to time – governance, philanthropy, conflicts issues and other miscellaneous risks (such as defamation). How such issues are approached, and what risk management strategies are adopted, will depend in large part on the nature and ethos of the particular museum, including its legal structure. This masterclass will give museum workers a chance to review and consider such issues, including as they arise in an age of social media and unrelenting news cycles.
