The Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto invites expressions of interest from outstanding scholars who wish to secure an Academic Visitor position at the Faculty of Law in the 2024-25 academic year. 

The ideal Visitor will be engaged in work that complements the research strengths of the Faculty of Law, whether by adding to already existing strengths or by bringing new perspectives.

The Academic Visitor position is not compensated. Applicants should be engaged in full-time research at a different institution. This opportunity is ideal for those on sabbatical, who hold a portable research fellowship or other funding to support their visit. Academic Visitors will be provided with office space and access to the University of Toronto library and will be expected to engage with full-time faculty members, attend Faculty Workshops and other similar initiatives.   

While we may be able to provide administrative advice, Academic Visitors must assume full responsibility for matters relating to visa applications, health insurance, housing and living expenses. Please note that Canada does not pay for hospital or medical services for visitors. We ask all Academic Visitors to secure health insurance for the duration of the stay.

Expressions of interest should include a current CV as well as a brief letter describing the research in which the applicant wishes to engage at the Faculty of Law and the dates of the proposed visit. Visits may vary in length. Expressions of Interest should be emailed to  

The Faculty of Law is no longer accepting visitor applications for the 2023-24 academic year. While Academic Visitor applications may be submitted on a rolling basis, visitors who wish to come in the 2024-25 academic year should submit an Expression of Interest by 1 March 2024, and applicants will be informed of the status of their application by 1 April 2024.

The Faculty of Law is not currently accepting visiting graduate students. Please check this page for updates.
