Center for Animal Law Studies

Visiting International Research Scholar Program

CALS welcomes law professors and legal scholars from all over the world come to Lewis & Clark Law School as a Visiting International Research Scholar. Visits may range anywhere from one week to one year to do self-directed, in-depth research on animal law. We value and appreciate the perspective that Visiting Scholars provide for our students and faculty, as well as providing opportunities for our Scholars to immerse themselves in our animal law community and learn more about U.S. animal law. Scholars chosen for our Visiting International Research Scholar Program have the opportunity to participate in our many animal law programs, including auditing our Animal Law courses, attending our annual Animal Law Conference, presenting to groups on campus, and interacting with students and faculty. 

In order to be considered for a Visiting International Research Scholar position, it is essential that you be fluent in English and have an understanding of the common law legal system.
