Distinguished Global Fellows

Many leading intellectual figures on the international legal stage are judges or government officials whose duties prevent them from spending more than a week or so away from home.  To gain the benefit of such people in our community, some of whom are former academics, the Hauser Global Law School Program invites them to campus as Distinguished Global Fellows.  During their brief visits, the distinguished fellows may participate in selected classes, seminars, colloquia, or other occasional lecture series such as the Distinguished Global Fellows Lecture Series.
