Law professor Janet Ulph to examine legal issues around museum sales and transfers as part of year-long appointment.

Professor Janet Ulph from our School of Law has been appointed Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Fellow by the Museums Association, and will lend her expertise and guidance to their Ethics Committee. Professor Ulph has spent the last few years researching the illicit trade in cultural property such as arts and antiquities, and her new book on the subject will be published next year. She will help the Ethics Committee analyse and understand legal issues surrounding the sale and transfer of items between museums.

Professor Ulph teaches and researches in areas such as commercial law and fraud, and has written and published textbooks on a variety of different subjects. Her latest work, The Illicit Trade in Art and Antiquities: International Recovery and Criminal and Civil Liability, will be published by Hart Publishing, Oxford next year.
