Visiting Scholars and Research Fellows Program Hosted by the Center for Korean Legal Studies
Every year the Center hosts several scholars and practitioners interested in pursuing legal research related to Korea at one of the world's top law schools for international and comparative law. In the past, the Center has sponsored scholars and practitioners primarily from Korea and will continue to do so in the future. However, in recognition of the increasing impact of Korean legal issues in the world economy and the growing number of legal professionals with an active need to understand the Korean legal landscape, the Center is seeking to sponsor more scholars from a broader spectrum of backgrounds, experience and geographic location.
Please note that the International Programs application asks for faculty sponsors. If you would like the Center for Korean Legal Studies to consider hosting you as a Visiting Scholar or Research Fellow, you must enter "Center for Korean Legal Studies," or the name of the Center's director, Professor Jeong-Ho Roh '88, in the first slot. For more information, click on the "Guidelines for Application" button. To apply, clickon the "International Programs Office Application Details" button.
It is highly recommended that you contact the Center's director or the deputy director with a brief self-introduction and summary of your research aims as part of the application process.
For purposes of Center sponsorship, the Visiting Scholar designation refers to academics and practitioners at mid-career to senior-level status. Note also that Research Fellow status is open to Ph.D. candidates and post-J.D. equivalent graduates.
