Graduate Study and Research Scholars
The University of Michigan Law School has a long and proud tradition of welcoming international students for graduate legal studies. Graduate degree candidates are law professionals with outstanding legal education and legal experience in their home countries or on the international level. The presence of both advanced degree candidates and visiting research scholars with a commitment to refugee and asylum law has created a vibrant intellectual community of refugee law scholars at Michigan.
Prof. Jim Hathaway, center, with 2012-2013 Research Scholars Samo Bardutzky from Slovenia; Emanuela Parisciani from Italy; Julian Lehmann from Germany; and "Bill" Huang Yunsong from China.
To enable advanced students from other parts of the world to participate in its unparalleled range of course and seminar offerings, the Program in Refugee and Asylum Law supports the admission to Michigan Law of a select number of candidates to undertake master's and doctoral studies in refugee law.

Both junior and experienced academics, including post-doctoral students, may apply to spend a term or a full academic year at Michigan Law as a research scholar, with entitlement to benefit from the Law School's extraordinary library collection and to audit courses and seminars associated with the Program in Refugee and Asylum Law. Research scholars affiliated with the Program in Refugee and Asylum Law also will be invited to meet on a biweekly basis with Prof. Jim Hathaway, director, to discuss their research.
