The successful applicant should hold a good honours degree (or equivalent) in law, a relevant master’s qualification or a postgraduate professional qualification, and preferably hold or be willing to register for a PhD. Ideally applicants will hold a teaching qualification or demonstrate willingness to undertake such a qualification.
