Visiting Professorships are awarded to UK institutions that wish to invite an eminent researcher from overseas to enhance the knowledge and skills of academic staff or the student body within the host institution. The scheme covers maintenance, travel expenses and research costs. Visiting Professorships last for between three and twelve months.

We received one award under this scheme in the Law Faculty in the May 2015 round which was awarded to Professor Peter Watts, supported by Christopher Hare. For more information you can read about the lecture series conducted here.
