Visiting Scholars and Research Fellows
The Visiting Scholar program has been an essential and enriching element at Columbia Law School for decades. The Law School has had the honor of hosting high-level governmental figures, prominent professors and renowned legal experts. Each academic year, the Law School has in residence approximately 70 scholars from Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, and points in between. Their areas of research cover a diverse and wide spectrum of legal issues.
This website provides comprehensive information for admitted visitors to prepare you for your stay at Columbia. Please pay particular attention to the sections on Visas and the Visiting Scholar Designation (mandatory for all Visiting Scholars).
Given the large number of visitors, it is important that you notify us of your arrival date so that we may schedule group orientation sessions for incoming scholars. Please contact Nancy Elsamanoudi in advance by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 1-212-854-0395 to make an appointment.
