University of Essex Lecturer in French Law
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.
The French and English Laws Double Degree is a highly successful programme. Since its creation in 2002, it has continually expanded, involving now three French partner universities and recruiting over 45 students a year. We are seeking to appoint a permanent Lecturer in French Law to join an enthusiastic team, based at our Colchester campus, fully committed to foster innovative cross-cultural exchanges between France and the UK in the areas of teaching as well as legal research to students’ benefit.
The successful candidate will have a PhD or an equivalent level of knowledge supported by evidence, with subject expertise in French law, especially the law of obligations and/or public law. Additionally, the appointee will possess the ability to make an administrative contribution to the Double Degree, the School’s and the University’s functioning and development.
We particularly welcome applications from those from an ethnic minority as they are under-represented in the School of Law.
