The Faculty has an established procedure for granting visiting scholar status. If an individual wishes to be a visiting scholar at the Faculty, an academic member of the Faculty must propose that individual and confirm that she or he knows the visitor personally and is familiar with the proposed visitor's academic work. If a member of the Faculty wishes to support the request, the visitor will be asked to complete an application form. In addition to the application form, the visitor will be asked to submit a CV and a brief description of the work they intend to pursue at Cambridge

Nominations for Faculty visitor status are then put to the Faculty Board for consideration. If approved by the Faculty Board, visitors are given access to the Squire Law Library, as well as to the computing facilities, and access to the Faculty's Senior Combination Room and the hot-desks area outside of it.

The Faculty member who put the nomination to the Faculty Board acts as the visitor's first point of contact at the Faculty, and must be available to help the visitor familiarise her/himself with the Faculty building. Unfortunately, the Faculty cannot provide research support or supervision, or provide assistance in finding accommodation for the visitor.

The Faculty will only be able to accept visitors under the sponsorship of a Faculty member. The Faculty does not accept speculative applications for visitor status.


A monthly bench fee of £175 per month or part month is charged to visitors.

Full payment must be made in advance of arrival in Cambridge. This can be done online.


Applications may be submitted at any time and are welcome both during and out of term time.

Applications to visit the Faculty for a period of longer than 6 months will require the sponsoring member of the Faculty to make a specific case. Such long stays will not be permitted if there is limited space in the Faculty.
