Leading experts from academia, industry and government come to IIEL as Research Fellows to advance scholarship and contribute to public debate in international economic law. Fellows carry out research independently and participate in the Institute sponsored initiatives, bringing their expertise to bear on a wide range of issues in the area. They engage in all aspects of IIEL’s ongoing research on issues such as trade, financial regulation, arbitration tax and transnational business. The IIEL Research Fellows Program supports high-potential candidates for graduate programs and careers in law. Research Fellows work alongside faculty, S.J.D. candidates and IIEL fellows to strengthen their skills and refine their research interests in IEL.

Georgetown Law’s Visiting Researcher program is designed for visitors with well-defined, independent research agendas. It is not generally appropriate for those who seek regular consultation with Georgetown faculty.

Visiting researchers may, however, work through various IIEL programming streams, including the IIEL Fellows program, to receive feedback on their work and to meet other likeminded scholars in the area in our weekly workshops. Additionally, they enjoy the same networking opportunities of IIEL faculty, staff and students for Institute events.

Applications for visiting researchers can be found here.  Please indicate your interest in IIEL in your application.
