University of Exeter - College of Social Sciences and International Studies

Law at Penryn is undergoing an expansion and these posts are key to support that growth. Candidates will teach on the Flexible Combined Honours Programme in 2018 and from 2019 on two new programmes in Law & Business – the LLB with Business and the BBL (Bachelor in Business and Law).

You will play a significant role in further enhancing the academic profile of Exeter Law School at the Penryn Campus. You will teach core subjects, principally Criminal Law, Contract, Torts and Public and European Union Law and develop materials for business-related subjects e.g. Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporate Law and Company Law.

You will work in a small dedicated team at Penryn to design and deliver high quality teaching. These positions would suit outstanding teachers who have a passion for education and learning and developing our students to realise their full potential. You should possess a depth or breadth of specialist knowledge demonstrated by a postgraduate qualification in the field of Law (at Master’s level) and the core knowledge relating to this academic area in order to teach and support learning. Candidates are not expected to be returned in the next REF exercise.
