Northumbria is a thriving research engaged, business focused, professional university with a firm ambitious vision. Working within the award winning Law School, which has an excellent reputation both for research and for learning and teaching, you will join a team of highly qualified academics with a passion for enhancing the student experience.
The successful candidate will contribute to research informed learning and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The ability to teach probate, information rights, family law, International Trade or core subjects is desirable, as is the ability to teach within the Student Law Office and/or on the Bar Professional Training Course but other subject areas will be considered. You will also undertake research, enterprise and scholarly activities contributing to the Faculty’s research profile.
You will ideally must be a qualified Solicitor or Barrister (though doctorally qualified non-practitioners will be considered) with excellent interpersonal skills and be able to teach effectively on a range of programmes using a variety of approaches to student learning. Ideally you will either have a PhD or equivalent or be close to completing a programme of doctoral study. Professionally qualified applicants without a PhD who are not currently completing a course of doctoral studies will be supported to develop a research profile and enrol on an appropriate doctoral programme and will be expected to engage with a programme of relevant legal research.
