The School of Law at Essex University seeks to explore justice, locally, nationally, and globally, through excellent legal research and education. We have nurtured research across many fields of law, in particular: International Human Rights Law, Public Law, and Commercial Law. Our research and engagement across the field of legal disciplines shapes thinking and action about the law and justice at all levels. Our graduates are equipped with the legal knowledge and skills to be agents for innovation and growth in the businesses and organisations they go on to join and lead. The School’s principle aims are to build on our areas of success, fostering an environment conducive to the highest quality research unbound by artificial limits, founded in theory and applied practice.
We are seeking to appoint a permanent Senior Lecturer/Lecturer in Law and Socio-Legal Studies to join an enthusiastic team, based at our Colchester campus, to play a substantial role in the development of teaching, research and administrative activities within the School of Law.
The successful candidate will have a PhD or an equivalent level of knowledge supported by evidence, with subject expertise in Socio-Legal studies and the proven ability to contribute teaching to core LLB subjects. For Senior Lectureship the appointee will have a strong record of high-quality research publications and activities.
We particularly welcome applications from those from an ethnic minority as they are under-represented in the School of Law.
