Art Law Research Guide

This guide provides an introduction to notable resources for conducting art law research available at Georgetown University and online.


This page provides information about a few select sources for researching foreign and international art law. We also have a series of research guides on foreign, international, and comparative law, including on specific topics, countries, or regions, including guides on treaties, U.N. research, and researching foreign (non-U.S.) law generally (e.g. for where a specific country/region is not addressed in its own guide).

Members of the Georgetown community should contact our Foreign & International Librarians for further guidance.
