This course will discuss the current legal standard defining due diligence, as well as its limitations, the varied approaches attempting to currently address due diligence requirements in the market, and provide a suggested framework and associated checklist to satisfy due diligence requirements in provenance research for cultural objects. The courts have the means to enforce the proper ownership rights of current possessors, good-faith purchasers, and rightful owners, yet the market is encountering significant challenges in implementing due diligence standards to comply with legal requirements and stabilize the trade.
