Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Law

Leeds Beckett University - Faculty of Business and Law, Leeds Law School

Leeds Law School provides a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses and has a long track record of achievement and ensuring student success. In all our activities we ensure excellence in teaching and learning and student experience; our 2016 NSS overall student satisfaction rate of 91% is testament to this.

Leeds Law School is investing in academic provision and seeking to appoint two academic staff at either Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level to join our team. We are looking for enthusiastic academics to make a key contribution to our academic provision through teaching, research and enterprise.

The successful candidates will be expected to teach on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and should have experience of teaching at least 2 of the foundation subjects; it would be a distinct advantage if candidates could teach on either property or criminal law.

Applicants must also be research active, preferably in any of the following areas:

  • Criminal Justice
  • International Human Rights
  • Terrorism
  • Legal Education
  • Equality Law

Those applying for Senior Lecturer roles should have significant educational administrative experience and been involved with drafting research bids.

Applicants must also possess a doctorate and have a commitment to provide high quality teaching at all levels.

Occasional overseas travel may be required.
