The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, its heritage shows a recurring theme of going its own way, doing things differently – and achieving notable results. The University of Surrey has risen in all major league tables for UK universities in the past year. We’re incredibly proud to have been named University of the Year by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. We’ve climbed from sixth to fourth place in the Guardian University Guide for 2016, moved up to eighth place in the Complete University Guide 2016. Additionally, we have been ranked as 5th in the National Student Survey which showed student satisfaction at 92%.

Members of our academic staff have international reputations for research and are experienced legal practitioners, providing consultancy to law firms, governments, non-governmental organisations and businesses around the world. The School enjoys excellent links with local, national and international legal communities. The School has particular expertise in Anti-Corruption Law, Environmental Law, Corporate and Commercial Law, Criminal Law, Health Sciences and Law, Chinese Comparative Law and Socio-Legal Studies, Human Rights Law, International Law, Tax Law, Legal Philosophy and Legal Theory.

The School aims to become one of the UK’s top 10 law schools, and there are firm strategic plans in place to support this growth and ambition. We aim to expand our academic programme and our strong commitment to scholarship by hiring exceptional faculty candidates.

We are seeking to appoint a permanent Teaching Fellow in any area of law. Applicants will have the ability to develop courses and innovative ways of teaching. Additionally, candidates will demonstrate a record of outstanding teaching in a university setting. You will show resourcefulness and enthusiasm, and demonstrate the ability to collaborate with colleagues and work as part of a supportive team.
