Each year the University of Houston Law Center hosts visiting foreign scholars to help them continue their legal research in Houston. Since 2008, the school has welcomed more than 56 scholars from 19 countries – with interest and applications increasing each year.
Most visiting scholars are funded by their university, home government, or through organizations such as Fulbright International. When possible, scholars should plan to begin their visit in August or January. Visitors may apply at any time, but should allow a minimum of two months for the University of Houston to process paperwork and issue visa documents.
Here’s how to apply:
The Law Center is unable to accommodate additional Visiting Scholars for the current year. Scholars interested in visiting the Law Center should email a request to GVetter@Central.UH.EDU after January 1, 2018.
The school provides shared office space, and access to the law library and Internet. Visiting scholars may, with approval, audit a class when the time of their visit coincides with the beginning of a semester. The Law Center may be unable to accommodate all requests.
