Teaching practice that falls within the law

November 25, 2005

A law fellowship advertised in this week's Times Higher in combination with a part-time PhD place could offer a new model for the aspiring academic.

The successful candidate will register for a part-time PhD in law and undertake 60 per cent teaching responsibilities in Warwick University's School of Law.

The postgraduate fellow in law will have a salary of between £20,044 and £30,002.

Lee Bridges, professor of law and chairman of the board of graduate studies, said that the aim was to train up an academic teacher of law.

"I felt this was an interesting way to support postgraduate students and to give them a more rounded development. The idea is to make them more marketable at the end of their PhD," he said.

Professor Bridges added that the post, which comes with five years'

funding, should prove appealing since most PhD students take four years to complete, even though standard funding is for only three years.

Warwick is also advertising for two law professors after the departure of Mike McConville, who has left to work in Hong Kong, and Judith Masson, who has joined Bristol University.
