Law and the Historic Environment
Anybody conducting or planning investigations of the historic environment will be confronted by a wide range of issues that may have legal consequences. This course provides an introduction for all who need to gain a broad understanding of the main legislative, regulatory and policy regimes for the historic environment, the ways in which those regimes are being applied at present, and the implications in practice for those working in the area.
The course is designed for those responsible for the supervision and conduct of historic environment investigations, whether in the professional or voluntary sectors. This will include those holding, or working towards, supervisory or higher levels of responsibility within professional practices, as well as those in curatorial or consultancy roles.
