Herbert Smith FreehillsThanks to the generosity and continuing support of the international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, the Faculty of Law is delighted to launch its new Herbert Smith Freehills Global Visitor Programme (which replaces the previous Herbert Smith Freehills Visitor Scheme).

For the new Programme, the Faculty of Law has entered into reciprocal staff visiting agreements with Harvard Law School, the Faculties of Law of the National University of Singapore, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Toronto, and the Law School of the University of Auckland/Te Wāhanga Ture o Tāmaki Makaurau. The Cambridge Faculty of Law will receive one visitor per year from each of these institutions, and Members of the Faculty will have the opportunity to visit our partner institutions.

"The new Programme will allow us to foster and grow our links with these world-leading law schools," said Prof Jens M Scherpe, the Faculty's Director of International Strategy and Partnerships. "We are delighted that the support of Herbert Smith Freehills enables us to welcome colleagues from our partner institutions and allows our colleagues to visit these institutions, and to create these further opportunities for international collaboration."

James Palmer, Chair and Senior Partner at Herbert Smith Freehills, added: "We are delighted to be supporting the Faculty's Global Visitor Programme, to build the sharing of ideas with academics from other leading law schools and faculties. Connecting global experiences about the development of law is vital at a time when many countries can seem increasingly introspective."
