2 NY Credits: 1 Ethics; 1 PP; 2 NJ Credits: 1 Ethics; 1 General


Faculty
: Raymond Dowd and Samuel Blaustein, Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP

Hear from Ray Dowd, an advocate for families seeking the return of art and other possessions lost after they were stolen by the Nazis and, in some instances, looted by others, whose ground-breaking litigation to recover artworks lost during World War II has gained amicus curiae support from Holocaust survivors and heirs.


Mr. Dowd will discuss the concept of art restitution as well as examples of ongoing restitution cases as well as whether museums around the world are doing enough to investigate their holdings and return looted art works to their rightful owners. He will also discuss the hurdles he has incurred  while representing the heirs of Holocaust survivors, such as laches, statutes of limitations and claims that the sales were voluntary.

This is a fascinating program which should not be missed!!!!
