The Cardozo School of Law hosts a modest Visiting Research Scholar program under which international scholars, practitioners, jurists and government officials visit the law school to conduct their own independent research for a period of time that generally ranges from six months to one year. Typically, we do not accept scholars over the summer.
Visiting Research Scholars have access to the physical and digital resources of our library (the Cardozo Law Library holds more than 540,000 books, periodicals, microforms, and audio and video materials), may audit 1 - 2 classes per semester, are assigned a law professor from Cardozo's Faculty to supervise their research, and are invited to attend the many programs, activities and other public events that regularly take place at the law school.
Please note that Cardozo’s Visiting Researcher program is designed for visitors with independent research agendas. There is no compensation or secretarial support for visiting researchers. Further, due to space constraints, we are unable to provide visiting researchers with an office.
The costs associated with the program are $7,000 for one semester (or 6 months) and $14,000 for one year. This includes guidance and documentation for visa applications. We do not offer any scholarships or stipends for this program. Scholars must provide their own funding, housing and health insurance.
