Visiting Foreign Scholars and Researchers ProgramFordham Law welcomes legal academics, judges and other high government officials, and doctoral and post-doctoral candidates from around the world to pursue full-time research activities at the Law School.
Visitors may be designated either as Visiting Foreign Scholars or Visiting Foreign Research Fellows and may remain in residence for up to one year. All visitors are expected to pursue their research at Fordham Law in a full-time capacity.
Visiting Foreign Scholars and Research Fellows are entitled to access to the Law School and library privileges, including the use of several of our electronic research services. Visitors are also welcome to participate in the intellectual life of the Law School by attending workshops and public lectures. Visitors are required to attend regularly a seminar series designed for them, which features presentations of works in progress by Visiting Foreign Scholars and Visiting Foreign Research Fellows, as well as outside speakers.
