Location: Oxford
Salary: £13,513 (six hours per week) will be taxable; additional allowances are available.
Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 13th August 2019

The College proposes to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Law for the 2020 calendar year to support the College’s teaching needs whilst Sam Williams (January-March), and Sandy Steel  (April-December) are on sabbatical leave. This is a fixed term, part-time contract, based at Wadham College. The main teaching focus for this post will be Tort Law, Contract Law and Land Law or Trusts. The lecturer will be required to give on average six hours per week of tutorials for Wadham College during the eight-week terms, and to be available during both term and for some periods of the students’ vacations to offer organizational, pastoral, and admissions support. 

Alongside Oliver Butler, and either Sam Williams or Sandy Steel, the College’s Tutorial Fellows in Law, the lecturer will be expected to share pastoral and organisational responsibility for students reading Law (Jurisprudence) and Law with Law Studies in Europe (a 4yr course). Key duties include arranging teaching, setting and marking collections (termly college examinations), writing and authorizing reports, organising and participating in subject social events, and arranging regular one-on-one meetings with undergraduates. The lecturer will be a member of the College’s Tutorial Board and be expected to attend its meetings. They will also be expected to play a major role in the undergraduate admissions process (finishing by Friday 11 December), and they will accordingly be expected to participate in appropriate admissions training by the beginning of November 2020 if they have not already done so. 

The lecturer will be required to teach at least two, and ideally three, of the Final Honour School papers Tort Law, Contract Law, and Land Law or Trusts Law. Applicants should also indicate which other papers, if any, they would be in a position to offer. If the appointed applicant teaches fewer than the three desired subjects, the period of the appointment may be reduced by one term. Current course descriptions are available from the Law Faculty’s web site: 

The stipend will be £13,513 and will be taxable; additional allowances are available. Further particulars, including information about how to apply, can be found here:
