The University of Sheffield’s School of Law is a large and diverse law school with an international reputation for excellence in research, for the expertise of its staff, and the achievement of its graduates. The School’s vision is to improve the inter-disciplinary understanding of law, socio-legal studies and criminology globally, combining outstanding academic research with innovative research-led and practice-led teaching. Our internationalisation strategy has led to a collaborative, global network of research and teaching links. We encourage all undergraduate students to spend a year abroad with one of our partners, and we have structured our degree programmes to facilitate this. The School’s civic engagement activities connect it with the city of Sheffield, and with partners in the commercial, public and third sectors, both nationally and internationally. The School’s pro bono work enriches the students’ experience and promotes an ethic of service to justice shared by staff, alumni and other supporters of the School.

You will join over 70 academic and teaching staff and a large professional support team. The total student body numbers around 1,200 undergraduates and more than 200 postgraduates. The School has a dedicated home in Bartolome House, a Grade II listed building, close to the main campus and library with easy access to the centre of Sheffield.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
