Job description

The Dickson Poon School of Law is seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate to the position of Chair of Contract Law. The successful candidate will have a strong research profile and teaching interests in the English and Welsh law of contract. Applications are particularly welcome from candidates who also have research and/or teaching expertise in areas of law that complement their contract law expertise, such as comparative law or the contract law of one or more civil law jurisdictions. 

Responsible to the Executive Dean.  

The Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London is one of the oldest law schools in England and recognised globally as one of the best law schools in the world. It is ranked 15th in the world and 5th in the UK in the QS World University Rankings for Law 2021.    

The Dickson Poon School of Law embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We attract students and staff from across the world, from many different backgrounds, with a variety of ethnicities, religions, and sexual and gender identities. We promote flexible working as a key enabler of inclusion. We particularly encourage and welcome applications from women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and from candidates who are LGBTQ+ and/or have a disability.

The Dickson Poon School of Law is housed in the East Wing of Somerset House, a Grade One listed building, on the College’s Strand Campus, no more than a couple of minutes’ walk from the Royal Courts of Justice and Inns of Court and midway between Westminster and the City of London. The School’s location has always enabled it to have excellent contacts with practitioners and policy-makers, and there is a strong tradition of engagement with the legal profession.

The Dickson Poon School of Law has a long-standing reputation for excellence in the laws of England and Wales, European, International and Transnational Law. The School’s research interests cover all areas of public and private law and include the philosophy and sociology of law as well as doctrinal, empirical, historical, interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to the study of law.
