Rethinking Museum Governance - an art law briefing

What are the legal responsibilities of museum trustees? Are the responsibilities and duties of museum boards in the UK the same as they were, say, 20 years ago?

In the first episode of Apollo and Charles Russell Speechlys' art law series Charles Saumarez Smith, Xavier Bray, Sarah Rowley and moderator Thomas Marks discuss the legal and ethical roles and responsibilities that museum boards and trustees face in the UK. This panel also explores how trustees can best fulfil their responsibilities in good faith and whether the focus of museum governance is likely to change as the activities and values of museums continue to evolve.
