Associate Professor/Lecturer in Legal Education

University of Leeds – School of Law

Are you an outstanding individual with a demonstrated track record of excellent research on legal education with the ambition to contribute to the further development of the School’s Centre for Innovation and Research in Legal Education? Do you want to be part of a thriving law school in a Russell Group University? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience?

The School of Law at Leeds is a successful, dynamic law school strongly committed to achieving excellence in both student education and research. We were ranked 8th overall in the UK for the quality of our research in REF 2014 and 4th for the impact of our research on society and have continued to invest to strengthen further our research centres. We are equally proud of our results in the National Student Survey over the last few years and student education lies at the heart of all we do.

To emphasise our strong commitment to developing and maintaining world class education practices, the School has made a strategic investment in the area of legal education and the profession. A Centre for Innovation and Research in Legal Education has been established and we are seeking high calibre individuals with a strong research and teaching profile who are able to contribute to its work. We invite applications from ambitious individuals who can work collaboratively and creatively to carry forward the vision of the School of Law with respect to innovation and research in student education and make a strong contribution to the undergraduate law core curriculum. We particularly welcome applications from those with an interest in the use of developing technologies in education and/or in the legal profession.

As a research active academic, you will be expected to maintain a strong research and publication record, and to enhance the School’s research activities and research culture.

You will deliver undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules in appropriate subject areas, as well as supervising dissertations and PhD candidates. You will also be expected to undertake a normal load of administrative duties within the School and work within the context of University values and policies, which are designed to promote dignity, diversity, and inclusiveness.

The appointment offers considerable potential for personal initiative and fulfilment through work within a centre of research excellence and a growing law school.
