Virtual Museum Law Conference on the Pandemic Effects Favorite 



Mar 15 2021



"Work-from-home lawyers and museum staff convened by webinar on 11 and 12 March, for an annual conference on Legal Issues in Museum Administration, hosted by the non-profit American Law Institute with the support of the Smithsonian Institution. This year’s focus was decidedly shaped by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has squeezed museums financially and pushed ever more museum activity into the digital realm.

Experts offered the latest on regulatory and legislative changes, how to encourage financial giving when a museum is shut, minimising the tax that museums pay on “unrelated” income, dealing with cyberattacks, and how employment law applies to a stay-at-home workforce—which many museum staff members are saying they want to continue post-pandemic."-MARTHA LUFKIN
