Visiting Research Scholar Applications
The School of Law welcomes applications for visiting scholars in all the areas of the School’s expertise. Details of the research interests of members of the Law School can be found: here
Research visits should normally be for a maximum of three months, but longer stays will be considered. Applications for periods of up to one month are considered by the Head of School only, and must be proposed by a member of the Law School’s academic staff. Applications for research visits of over one month are considered by the School’s Research Committee at its regular meetings and the application form must be signed by a member of the Law School’s academic staff. In all cases, the support of a member of academic staff at the Law School is required to make an application.
The School is willing to consider applications for visits from January 2022 onwards, but applicants should note that any visits will be conditional on the prevailing public health requirements and any restrictions that these may impose upon campus activities.
Our Visiting Research Application Form can be accessed here .
*NOTE* The School of Law is unable to accept visiting applications from postgraduate research students (other than through direct participation in the LERU European Exchange Programme for Law Schools). However, postgraduate students from non-LERU partner universities may apply to access the University's Library.
Submitted applications received by the Law School from prospective research visitors are considered by the Research Committee and Head of School between September-April each academic year. Early applications are encouraged and in any event no less than three months before arrival date to allow time for processing relevant paperwork. Applicants should note that research visits are conditional on the prevailing public health requirements and any restrictions that these may impose upon campus activities including restrictions on access to the Library.
Note: The next consideration of visitor applications received will occur in September 2022.
