Each year, the Cegla Center for Interdisciplinary Research of the Law invites researchers from all over the world to be visiting scholars at the Buchmann Faculty of Law. The participants in this program are outstanding scholars from different areas of law, who are interested in spending one semester (3 months) at one of the leading law schools outside the US, and devote their entire time to scholarly research.
In addition to academic excellence, for acceptance to the program, the Center also takes into consideration faculty members’ degree of interest in a candidate’s topic of research. Command of either English or Hebrew is mandatory.
Each visiting scholar is awarded a grant of $3,000.
During their stay at the Faculty of Law, participants in the program have full access to library services. They also are welcome to attend any courses and workshops given at the Faculty and to participate in Faculty conferences and symposia. Most of the activities in the Faculty of Law are conducted in Hebrew. A few courses, however, are given in English by distinguished visiting professors from the Anglo-American legal world and Europe. The utmost will be done to provide the program participants with office facilities (to be shared with other participants).
Applications should be sent to the Center via email with the applicant’s CV, complete list of publications and short description (two to three pages) of his/her research plan.
The first semester of the 2016-2017 academic year begins on October 30, 2016, and ends on January 29, 2017. The second semester runs from March 13, 2017, to June 29, 2017.
