About Professor Murray

I am excited to be a part of Telluride House for 2015-16 because I have enjoyed several experiences of living in an academic community with students and fellow faculty members, most recently in Cambridge, England, and twice previously in Firenze, Italy. I teach law school, graduate school, and undergraduate courses in Art Law, Civil Procedure, First Amendment and Censorship, International Art and Cultural Heritage, International Civil Liberties: Freedom of Expression, Introduction to Advocacy, Legal Profession, Legal Research and Writing, and Professional Responsibility.  I am the author or coauthor of eighteen books and numerous law review articles on art law, civil procedure, copyright, freedom of expression, law and the health care professions, legal research and writing, and products liability. 

My current research is in visual rhetoric. I have recently published or contracted to publish two articles on visual rhetoric for advocacy in legal briefs, and visual rhetoric for cross-cultural communication.  While at Michigan, I will complete an article on visual rhetoric and narrativity.  I also will be updating and revising volume one of the Deskbook of Art Law: Artists' Rights in Intellectual Property, Moral Rights, and Freedom of Expression.
