Advanced Study

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.

Research Scholars

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.

Graduate Studies

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.
