The Law School has a worldwide reputation for excellence in teaching and research, attracting academics, visiting lecturers and students from across the globe. We are an ambitious, dynamic and friendly Law School delivering a first class legal education at an elite Russell Group University. We combine academic excellence with innovative teaching to provide our students with the experience, skills and confidence needed to build a successful career.

We are looking for applications from leading international figures in the area of Commercial and Finance Law or Legal History to develop further the academic profile of the Law School.  You should be innovative researchers and teachers, with a strong track record of research funding and international quality publications. A commitment to, and evidence of, research leadership is essential.

We therefore particularly welcome applications from academic staff with strong connections and funded projects with business and community partners and who are involved in projects which develop impact. At Exeter our academics benefit from specialist support for external engagement and development from our Innovation, Impact and Business directorate.
