Visiting Scholars Program
Pacific McGeorge hosts international scholars, professors, judges and practitioners through the Visiting Scholars Program. While at McGeorge, Visiting Scholars have access to the Legal Studies Center (including access to research databases Westlaw and LexisNexis), may choose a carrel in the library, receive support from the Graduate and International Programs office, have access to the faculty dining lounge, and may audit some classes.
The law school is dedicated to hosting two to three visiting scholars annually. The fee for the Visiting Scholar program for 2014-2015 is $3,000 per semester. We ask visiting scholars to submit a draft of their research after the first semester, and the final research project upon completion of their stay as a scholar.
