Exchange Programme with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg

The exchange is open to Faculty members and graduate research students of the Oxford Law Faculty who wish to pursue research at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg. Under the agreement with the Max Planck Institute, Oxford may send to Hamburg either one eligible person for a six-month period or a number of eligible persons for shorter periods totalling six months. Current practice is that research stays typically last three months (April to June or July to September). The Max Planck Institute will provide single accommodation, free of charge, (shared) office space with a computer, and generous library access. There will be no teaching or other formal obligations, although visitors might be asked to give a paper on their ongoing research. Knowledge of the German language is an asset, but is not required in the working environment of the Hamburg Institute.

Information about applying to the programme will be sent via the Faculty mailing lists in Michaelmas Term of every academic year. Informal enquiries should be addressed to the Administrator of the Institute.


 

Alpa Scholarships

These scholarships, funded through the generosity of Professor Guido Alpa (Professore ordinario di diritto civile at the University of Rome Sapienza), enable an exchange between the Law Faculties of Oxford and Rome Sapienza. One scholarship of £5,000 will be offered each academic year to enable either a doctoral research student or an early career academic of the Oxford Law Faculty to spend up to two months undertaking research at the Law Faculty of the University of Rome Sapienza. In appropriate cases, the scholarship may also be split between several researchers. The timing of the visit is flexible, and will be agreed between the Scholar and the Dean of the Law Faculty at Sapienza. The Alpa Scholarship is intended to cover the costs of the visit (including travel and accommodation).

Information about applying to the programme will be sent via the Faculty mailing lists in Michaelmas Term of every academic year. Informal enquiries should be addressed to the Administrator of the Institute.
