Visiting Scholars

Each year the Dean Rusk International Law Center at the University of Georgia School of Law hosts visiting scholars and researchers from across the globe. These visitors stay at Georgia Law for brief or extended periods in order to work with faculty, engage with students through mini-courses and less formal presentations, and take advantage of our Alexander Campbell King Law Library as well as other University of Georgia libraries, including the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies.

A list of visiting researchers and scholars over the years is here.
