The U.S.-Asia Law Institute hosts a small number of outstanding foreign research scholars from Asia each year. Our Visiting Scholars include judges, prosecutors, lawyers, legal journalists, and legislators, as well as academics. Scholars are able to audit classes at NYU, use the NYU library and other resources and attend events at NYU while pursuing their own research goals and contributing to Institute research and projects. Our semi-monthly Visiting Scholar Workshop Series provides an opportunity for Visiting Scholars to share their work with experts from various fields. All Visiting Scholars are expected to participate in Institute events and to share the results of their research with the faculty, staff and other scholars at the Institute. Click here to learn more.
