Dean Soifer Welcomes Visitors At Reception

LLM Students



Who Is A Visiting Scholar

Each year, Richardson hosts Visiting Scholars from around the world, including from throughout Asia, who have applied to spend either the entire academic year or a semester with us.

Visiting Scholars will ordinarily be scholars and/or teachers from law schools or other academic or research institutes; unfortunately, we do not accept graduate or research students.

Special consideration will be given to Visiting Scholars, in choosing between applications, who can make a contribution to our Law School community through their research and other activities.

No English test is required such as TOEFL, but Visiting Scholars should demonstrate high English proficiency.

What A Visiting Scholar Can Expect

Throughout their stay, we enthusiastically welcome our Visiting Scholars and make every effort to integrate them into all that we do, including all social and academic events.

All Visiting Scholars collaborate closely with faculty and students, and are supported in their research. Visiting Scholars are also invited to participate in one of our seminar programs specifically, which might include a talk for faculty members or a discussion with students.

Of course, the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Libraries, in addition to our own Law Library, are available to Visiting Scholar, all of which provide wireless computer access. Although because of space limitations, we cannot provide offices for visiting scholars, individual carrels in the Law Library will be assigned upon request.
