Lecturer/ Senior Lecture in Law

University of Gloucestershire - School of Law

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our School of Law within the Business School.  Due to a growth trajectory, including a new purpose built new Business School opening in September 2018, we are now seeking additional staff.  We are looking for exceptional candidates to join a well-established dynamic subject team.  Our New Business School includes a Mock Court room and many state-of-the-art new facilities for both staff and students, including a collaborative lecture room, social learning space and breakout areas.  Business partnerships are at the heart of what we do and this will be enhanced by our co-location with the regional LEP, Growth Hub and University in Business in our new facilities.  We focus on producing career ready graduates - our law students gain experience beyond the classroom through opportunities to participate in internships, Client Interviewing, Mooting, and our student Law Clinic.

To become part of our team you will be someone who can contribute to world-class teaching and work successfully with a range of students across our expanding course portfolio.  We need additional support in a number of subject areas, so are looking for someone who can be flexible in the specific subject areas they can offer – examples of subject areas we would consider include: EU Law, Tort, Contract, Criminal, Constitutional & Administrative law, Research Methods, Business Law, IT Law, Family Law, and Company Law.

If you have the drive and enthusiasm for your subject area we can give you the opportunities to be involved in teaching, doctoral supervision, research, and income generating activities.  For the grade of Senior Lecturer, you should be able to contribute to the academic management of the subject community in a variety of ways.  Such candidates would also be expected to take on an academic management role within the subject group such as: course leadership; contributing to academic development; REF submission; generating research income; or generating Business Development income.

The School of Law subject group is expanding its portfolio from 2018 by introducing a new LLM course and additional LLB courses.  We pride ourselves on our support for students and aiding students in their employability and personal growth, through innovative pedagogy developments and real-world engagements in our programmes. 

*Those who have the research profile required for Reader/Professor can be considered for upgrade by the Professorial Appointment Panel.

Interview Date: Wednesday 14th February 2018

The University understands the benefits of recruiting a diverse range of people and welcome applications from under-represented sections of the community.
