To encourage research collaboration and strengthen ties with other universities, each year the Faculty of Law welcomes researchers from other institutions. As an invited researcher you will be able to access the library and other services and resources at the Faculty of Law during your stay. You will also be invited to attend events, conferences, and seminars, and to interact with our professors and students.


To be able to complete a stay as a foreign researcher you must be invited by a professor at the Faculty of Law.

Please note:

  1. The necessary administrative procedures that must be fulfilled for foreign researchers, EU and non-EU, to visit Barcelona. More information on this page.
  2. Full health and accident insurance that includes coverage for repatriation is needed, and must cover the entire period of your stay. The UB will not be responsible for covering any costs in case of accident and repatriation.
