Each year, the Center for International and Comparative Law accepts a few proven legal scholars as Visiting Scholars. Given the difficulty of choosing among a large number of qualified applicants, we limit invitations to full-time academics currently affiliated with a university who have a special need for our library resources in order to complete a well-defined research project.
Please note that our Visiting Scholars pay a research tuition fee. For 2014-15, this fee will be $2,500 per semester or part thereof. We anticipate that this fee may rise each year. Under our program, scholars have access to the Law School's library facilities, to the legal research services WestLaw and Lexis, and to the resident faculty. As available, Scholars will have dedicated research space within the Center. Scholars may also informally audit up to two Law School courses each semester, provided there is room in the desired courses after degree students have completed registration.
Those interested in being considered for participation in the program should send their curriculum vitae, proposed dates of residence, and an outline of their proposed research program to:Catherine Moore
Applications for the Visiting Scholar Program must be received by March 1 for the Fall residency and August 1 for Spring residency. Invitations are usually made in April for Fall residency and September for Spring residency.
