McGeorge School of Law

Visiting Scholars Program

McGeorge hosts international scholars, professors, judges and practitioners conducting law-related research through our Visiting Scholars Program.

While at McGeorge, visiting scholars receive support from the Graduate and International Programs Office. Visiting scholars also enjoy access to our library, including Lexis and Westlaw research databases, and a study carrel.

We strongly prefer to have visiting scholars schedule their visit to begin in early January or August, just before the start of classes; however, under special circumstances, we may be able to accommodate alternative start dates. Visiting scholars are expected to be proficient in the English language. A TOEFL score of at least 80 or IELTS score of at least six (6) is required. If no such scores are available, an equivalent level of English language proficiency may be demonstrated through other means.

To encourage involvement and interaction with the campus community, visiting scholars are encouraged and expected to participate in the life of the school by attending student and faculty events and giving a presentation regarding their research to students and faculty. Visiting scholars are required to submit a draft of their research after the first semester, and/or the final research project upon completion of their program. In addition, visiting scholars are required to audit one to three courses per semester.

The fee for the Visiting Scholar program is $4,000 per semester.
