The University of Michigan Law School offers two advanced study programs in refugee
and asylum law: Research Scholars and Graduate Studies. The presence of both advanced
degree candidates and visiting research scholars with a commitment to refugee and
asylum law has created a vibrant intellectual community of refugee law scholars
at the University of Michigan.
Experienced academics may apply to spend a term or a full academic year at the University
of Michigan Law School as a Research Scholar, with entitlement to benefit from the
Law School’s extraordinary library collection and to audit courses and seminars
associated with the Program in Refugee and Asylum Law.
To enable advanced students from other parts of the world to participate in its
unparalleled range of course and seminar offerings, the Program in Refugee and Asylum
Law supports the admission to the University of Michigan Law School of a select
number of candidates to undertake master’s and doctoral studies in refugee law.
