Current Visiting Scholars and Researchers


Welcome to our vibrant community of Visiting Foreign Scholars and Visiting Research Fellows! Each year we welcome numerous visitors from around the world to pursue independent research at our Law School.

Visitors are welcome to participate in the intellectual life at the law school, to attend public events, and, space permitting and with the permission of the professor, to audit law school courses. If you would like to audit a course, please click herePlease do not contact faculty members directly.

The Office of International and Non-JD Programs hosts a number of informal Research/Study Groups for Visiting Scholars and Research Fellows.  Groups have been formed for Constitutional Law, Contract and Commercial Law, Criminal Law, and International Law.  Please see the newsletter for information about how to join or moderate these groups. 

Visitors are also expected to attend seminars that are designed especially for them. All visitors are encouraged to present their research at this seminar series. Upcoming lectures are listed in the International and Non-J.D. newsroom and in the Visiting Scholar and Research Fellow Program eNewsletter.  Research Scholars and Fellows are invited to email vsr@law.fordham.edu  in order to schedule a presentation of their work.
