David Collins, a Senior Lecturer and Director of the Graduate Entry LLB Course at The City Law School, has been invited to act as a Visiting Scholar at New York’s prestigious Columbia Law School this Autumn.
David will fulfil the role at the world-famous Ivy League graduate school during the Fall term and will undertake a research project exploring the regulation of international investment in services from emerging markets.
In addition, David has also been awarded a grant worth £1,800 by the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS), which is intended to support his stay in New York. The SLS, which was founded in 1908, represents all those involved in legal academia in universities and beyond.
This is a second feather in the cap for David, a native Canadian, who earlier this year also won a lucrative cash award to pursue an international research project in Canada. The Foundation Ontario Bicentennial Travel Award is administered by the Foundation for Canadian Studies in the UK, which bestows a number of grants to high-achieving academics and students every year.
Commenting on his latest appointment, David said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as a Visiting Scholar in one of the world’s greatest cities and at one of its finest educational institutions. This is a great opportunity for me to further my research.”
