The Herchel Smith Visitor scheme, operated by CIPIL, allows us to pay up to £5000 for the travel and accommodation expenses of two visiting fellows per year working in intellectual property or information law. This amount would typically cover an economy flight and accommodation in Cambridge for around a month.

Expressions of interest are welcome all year round, but decisions fall to the CIPIL Management Committee in January and May. Applicants are asked to identify (i) when they hope to visit (preference will be given to those who intend to come during the academic year, and particularly during teaching time); (ii) what they are intending to work on and (iii) to agree that they would offer a seminar. Occasionally, visiting fellows will be asked to contribute up to 10 hours of teaching.
