Every year we welcome a number of visiting scholars who wish to pursue their own research projects and join in the academic life at the School of Law for a minimum of one month, and a maximum of one year.
The visiting scholars scheme is for established scholars (including academics, practitioners and judges) who wish to join the School of Law during a period of sabbatical leave from their usual place of work or home institution. Visiting scholars are provided with IT facilities, library access and, where possible, hot-desk or office space.
These are non-stipendiary positions. Depending on the length of stay, a fee may be charged.

|Duration of Visit||Fee in £ (fees are taxed)|
