Lecturer in Law

University of Central Lancashire - Lancashire Law School

At Lancashire Law School we commit to provide for our 1,000+ law students, drawn from the UK and overseas, a learning experience which is stimulating, challenging, high quality, and research-informed. The School offers a full suite of undergraduate, masters, and research degrees, as well as professional postgraduate training and CPD courses. We have a network of high quality partnerships in the UK and overseas, and run a number of externally funded research and knowledge transfer projects. Building on a strong performance in the last REF, we are seeking to make an excellent return to the next REF for the subject law.

The School has a friendly, supportive, and engaged staff base with a shared vision for excellence.

With over 50 successful, well qualified, and culturally diverse academic staff, we are now looking to enhance expertise in the foundation subjects of law through the appointment of a lecturer.

The post holder will contribute to the School’s wide portfolio of taught courses, supervise postgraduate research students, and actively engage in research and/or knowledge transfer activities. Without limiting the call for applications, the School particularly welcomes applications from those with a teaching and research interest in mental health law and/or family law.

The successful applicant should hold a good honours degree (or equivalent) in law, a relevant master’s qualification or a postgraduate professional qualification, and preferably hold or be willing to register for a PhD. Ideally applicants will hold a teaching qualification or demonstrate willingness to undertake such a qualification.

Evidence of ability to produce publications to contribute to future REFs, and/or a willingness to engage in income generation and high quality research or knowledge transfer work is essential.

Utilising excellent communication and presentation skills, the successful applicant will demonstrate a flexible and innovative approach to teaching and learning, and be able to teach/supervise dissertations up to post graduate level.

Applicants need to meet all essential criteria on the person specification to be considered for interview. This position is based in Preston.
