Senior Lecturer in Law

University of Hertfordshire - Hertfordshire Law School

FTE: Two full time positions available, each working 37 hours per week (1.0 FTE)

At the Hertfordshire Law School we pride ourselves on delivering a truly innovative learning and teaching experience coupled with practice-led, hands-on experience. Our students consistently provide excellent feedback about their educational experience which is also evidenced through the number of students graduating with good honours degrees and our strong employability rates.

The School teaches long standing, successful LLB and LLM programmes in a £10m purpose-built Building on the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland campus, which includes a full scale replica Crown Court Room, bespoke Mediation Centre and state-of-the-art teaching facilities.  We now seek an experienced and engaging academics to permanent, full time positions to support the ongoing development of our law programmes.  In particular, we are looking for someone with the experience and ability to contribute to the design and delivery of innovative, research-informed, and engaging modules at both undergraduate and/or post-graduate level, including from the following areas: employment law, evidence, litigation (civil and/or criminal), commercial law, equity and trusts, land law, and the law of torts.

Teaching experience at both undergraduate and post-graduate level is essential; however, as an alternative to research interests in the areas to be taught, reflecting the University’s business-facing approach to learning we would also be interested in receiving applications from those with relevant practical legal or business experience which can then be drawn on in order to enhance our students’ learning experience.  Experience in wider student engagement initiatives would also be beneficial. The successful Applicant’s duties will include:

  1. Working on one or more of our law programmes.
  2. Assisting and supporting Module Leaders within those programmes.
  3. Working co-operatively and supportively as part of the School’s teaching team, including off-campus activities where required.
  4. Working closely with the Associate Deans and Programme Leaders in order to continue the development of the School’s teaching and learning initiatives and ensure the currency of the curriculum.
  5. Making a positive contribution to the School’s wide range of co-curricular activities; helping to develop our links with employers; and/or seeking to pursue a programme of research to a standard appropriate for consideration under the Research Excellence Framework (REF), including the ability to secure research funding.

Informal enquiries may be made to Barbara Henry (Associate Dean (Academic Quality Assurance)) / 01707 286212, or Neal Geach (Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching)) / 01707 286214.

The University offers a range of benefits including a pension scheme, professional development, family friendly policies, a fee waiver of 50% for all children of staff under the age of 21 at the start of the course, discounted memberships at the Hertfordshire Sports Village and generous annual leave.
