Associate Professor/Lecturer in Law and Social Justice

University of Leeds – School of Law

Are you an outstanding individual with passion and enthusiasm about your research and teaching in law and social justice? Do you have expertise in family law, child law, labour law, housing, or health care law with ambition to contribute to the further development of the School’s Centre for Law & Social Justice? Do you want to be part of a thriving law school in a Russell Group University?

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. We are seeking to appoint a high calibre individual with a strong research and teaching profile to complement our existing research strengths in disability, health, access to justice, family relations, transgender rights, legal theory, and human rights. The successful candidate will contribute to the national and international profile and standing of the Centre for Law and Social Justice which is one of the School’s highly successful research centres.

The post is open to those with expertise in the field of family, child, labour, housing, or health care law.

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.
