Visiting Scholars Program

Each year, the Law School welcomes international visitors, including professors, judges, government officials and advanced research students. Each visitor enriches the intellectual life of the Law School, brings new insight to the students, promotes collaborative research with the faculty and builds reciprocal ties to international institutions and organizations.

Potential visiting scholars seeking to become a part of the Law School community through an extended research opportunity can submit the following information and materials via email to Yan Hong at with the subject line "Visiting Scholar Application: Attention Yan Hong."
