The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) is an exciting place to work, teach and study – a place that nurtures talent and encourages innovation. Established in 1980, it has become one of the world’s leading academic institutions for the study of commercial law. The primary objectives of the Centre are to conduct scholarly research of international excellence, to contribute to the shaping of public and commercial policy, and to provide teaching of the highest quality at post-graduate level. CCLS covers the whole spectrum of commercial law, including arbitration, banking and finance, intellectual property, international trade, media and communications, shipping, insurance, regulation, ethics, and tax, and around 900 students from some 80 countries study for masters and doctorate degrees. CCLS’s principal location is Lincoln’s Inn Fields near both the Royal Courts of Justice and the financial centre of the City of London, but graduate students can also study in Paris, and other programmes are being developed in China, Singapore and Greece.
CCLS intends to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Arbitration. The successful candidate will be required to undertake teaching on appropriate modules included in the LLM specialism in international and comparative dispute resolution. In addition, the candidate will conduct scholarly research leading to publications of the highest ranking, take an active role in the development of the work of the School of International Arbitration, and carry out administrative tasks as assigned by the Head of CCLS and the Director of the School of International Arbitration.
