Visiting Scholars and Researchers
International Visiting Scholars and Researchers
Saint Louis University School of Law and the Center for International and Comparative Law host distinguished international academics, lawyers, judges, government officials and graduate law students engaged in legal research and professional development. International Visiting Scholars and Visiting Researchers visit the School of Law for periods ranging from 10 days to one year. Recent visiting scholars and researchers have come from diverse areas such as Spain, Colombia, Germany, and China. Over the years visiting scholars and researchers have contributed to the School of Law's rich intellectual climate while drawing on the wide-ranging expertise of the School's faculty in U.S. domestic, international and comparative law.
