Chambers is delighted to announce that Luke Tattersall has been awarded the 2020 Lalive Merryman Fellowship for the best article published in the International Journal of Cultural Property (Cambridge University Press).

The annual fellowship was established by the University of Geneva’s Art-Law Centre and the International Cultural Property Society in honour of Professors Pierre Lalive and John Henry Merryman. It is aimed at the promotion and development of emerging scholars in the field of international cultural heritage law and related fields such as art and museum law. The Lalive Merryman Fellow is a residency fellowship hosted by the University of Geneva during which time the Fellow is given the opportunity to carry out further publishable research.

Pierre Lalive (1923-2014) was professor of law at the University of Geneva and founding partner of the international law firm LALIVE. John Henry Merryman (1920-2015) was Emeritus Professor at Stanford Law School and a leading art law scholar in the field of comparative law.

The article was entitled Derailing State Immunity: A Broad-Brush Approach to Jurisdiction under Claims for the Expropriation of Cultural Property. (Ref: I.J.C.P. 2019, 26(2), 181-195)
