Guidelines for Application
Formal application for the center's Visiting Scholar or Research Fellow status begins with submitting an application to the Office of International Programs.
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. The remaining slots may contain other Law school faculty who would likely have an interest in your area of research (though this is not required). If the Center decides to host you, we will make every effort to gain and coordinate the support of the other faculty you have listed.
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.
Your application should describe a research topic that is directly related to some aspect of Korean law and legal institutions.
These topics can be:
- Purely domestic in nature.
- Comparative between Korea and one or more jurisdictions.
- Involve issues in international law impacting Korea.
- Involve Korea's role in the development of international standards.
- Involve Korean legal history and philosophy
Visiting scholars are expected to be actively engaged in the proceedings of the Center for Korean Legal Studies throughout their residency. This includes monthly gatherings to share progress on your research project with other Center-sponsored scholars, as well as a presentation on your research that will be open to the Law School community. A strong application will express your commitment to this involvement.
