Academic visitors

UNSW Law welcomes academic visitors from overseas and Australian institutions. Such visits represent a valuable opportunity for the exchange of ideas, collaborative research and the establishment of national and international relationships.

Visitors can contribute to the Law School in various ways including a presentation of their current research via the weekly Staff Seminar Series, guest lecturing or specialist project work with staff of the Law School or the various research centres.

The Law School is open to applications from potential visitors at any stage of their academic career, and the duration of the visit can vary from a short stay to a full sabbatical period.

Visitors are usually appointed as a Visiting Fellow upon the recommendation of a UNSW academic staff member. A current CV is required for this process.

The Law School will endeavour to provide academic visitors with workspace including computer, printing facilities, phone and access to library resources. The Law School is not able to assist with accommodation arrangements but the UNSW Accommodation website provides helpful information.

Overseas visitors to the Law School often require a visa. In some instances, an Electronic Travel Authority is sufficient but in other instances, especially for stays longer than 3 months, a category 419 Academic Visitor visa is necessary.
