Visiting Scholars

From time to time, the Hennick Centre for Business and Law at York University will host Visiting Scholars from law schools, business schools, private practice and industry from around the world who are working on topics related to the mandate of the Centre.

The Hennick Centre explores issues at the intersection of business, law and public policy, focusing on issues related to capital markets, corporate governance, globalization and responsible business or sustainability. Through its programs, activities and initiatives, the Centre seeks to promote joint business and law scholarship and education.

The Hennick Centre is physically housed at Osgoode Hall Law School. Visitors have access to the Law School’s facilities, as well as the law and business libraries. Visitors do not have faculty status, nor are they entitled to office space, telephones or secretarial services. Visitors are normally in residence at the Centre for either a semester or academic year.

Visitors may attend/audit lectures on a non-credit basis with permission of the Professor. Visitors may consult with other faculty members interested in their field of study but are not entitled to individual supervision unless arranged by the prospective visitor prior to the visit.

In selecting applicants, the Hennick Centre’s selection committee will consider the applicant’s background, field of interest and research proposal.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter outlining their research, a curriculum vitae, and a sample of their academic writing to Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. For further queries, please contact the Centre’s Director, Professor Ed Waitzer, at
