Visiting Fellows will be given work space and related facilities in the School of Law.

There is no financial support available, but the School is willing to assist in applications to other funding bodies to cover costs of travel and accommodation.

Visiting Fellows would be expected to present a paper based on their research during their time at the School.

Applications are welcome from scholars at any level of experience or seniority.

Applications can take up to six months to be approved by the Head of School, Faculty and Human Resources. Please consider this time frame when applying.
