Our visiting scholar programme
If you are a professional or an academic, and you have a scheme of academic research that you can appropriately conduct at the School of Law, then our visiting scholar programme may be a perfect opportunity for you.
Generally, our visiting scholars are full-time members of another university. We encourage applications from experienced and younger scholars. We normally limit visits to a maximum of one semester but you can also arrange a visit for a period of weeks.
Our visiting scholars participate in our academic life as much as possible, for example, engaging in discussions or joint projects with School members and presenting papers about their own research within the School or Centre seminar programme.
- Office space: desk space is available in the School of Law.
- Computing: facilities are available in the School of Law and through open clusters across the University campus.
- Library: Leeds University Library is one of the UK's largest university libraries with a stock of over 2.3 million volumes. You can find the main collections in relation to the School of Law in the Brotherton Library, which also houses Governmental Papers, a "European Documentation Centre" and the Law Library.
- Class attendance: you may attend a class on a non-credit, unregistered basis subject to the consent of the Centre member teaching the course. Those wishing to obtain credits may be able to register for our Certificate or Diploma programmes, subject to their meeting the usual admissions requirements and subject to the payment of the normal fee.
- Accommodation: the University may be able to assist visiting scholars with university housing during the summer months.
As a Visiting Scholar, you will become part of a close academic community. We recognise you will wish to concentrate on your own specialist research, but we also assure you that you won't be left in academic or social isolation.
Above all, the School is a cooperative and friendly unit. We also offer the usual facilities of a staff common room with access to food, retail and leisure facilities just minutes from its front door.
