Lecturer in Law

University of Suffolk - School of Law and Social Sciences

Suffolk Law is growing – both in terms of portfolio and team members. The School of Law and Social Sciences seeks to appoint a well-qualified and student-centred lecturer to contribute to our law programme. We invite applications from candidates to teach Property Law, Contract Law, Legal Ethics, and Dispute Resolution. The post offers the opportunity to join a friendly, supportive team in the iconic Waterfront building overlooking the marina at Ipswich’s Neptune Quay.

Law is new to Suffolk University but we are very ambitious and have big plans for the future. We currently offer LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology, LLB (Hons) Law with Sociology and BSc (Hons) Criminology and Law. We’re also in the process of validating a suite of new courses for October 2018: LLB (Hons) Law, LLB (Hons) Law with Politics and LLB (Hons) Law with Business Management.  This is an exciting to time to be joining our institution as we lay the foundations for solid and cohesive legal education in the county of Suffolk.

The School offers a portfolio of law, criminology, politics, sociology, and social work courses, driven by the interests and passions of an inter-disciplinary staff team. Our School is all about making a difference in the world. This is reflected in the range of subjects we teach, our interest in social justice, and our focus on how to make life better and fairer. You will join a school with around 30 staff and some 500 students. Through teaching, research, and collaborative enterprise, we focus on student-centred learning and progression, and meaningful engagement with wider professional and academic communities.
