Founded in 1894, City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.

City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level) from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.

In the last decade, City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research.

Led by President, Professor Sir Paul Curran, City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.

The City Law School is unique in attracting significant numbers of students across all stages of legal education. It has a very long history of educating lawyers, judges, policymakers and business leaders dating back to the nineteenth century in the form of the Inns of Court Law School. Alumni include three British Prime Ministers, many of the City of London’s most prominent barristers, solicitors and judges; and leaders of a wide variety of business and community organisations.

The School has over 2,500 students enrolled for the Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma in Law (which originated at City), Master of Laws, PhD and on its barrister and solicitor vocational training programmes. It benefits from being a comprehensive law school in the heart of London in close proximity to the courts, leading barristers’ chambers and law firms. From 2020/21, City’s academic and professional programmes will, for the first time, be housed together in a new building.

A large majority of the School’s staff have been practising lawyers and many are leaders in their academic and professional fields. During the next five years the School will increase its academic staff numbers significantly while holding student numbers at current levels. This will allow for improvements in research, education and the student experience; and provides an opportunity for outstanding candidates to join The City Law School at an exciting time in its history.

The School is seeking to appoint an outstanding academic passionate about providing students with the best possible education and co-curricular experience and enthusiastic about world-leading and internationally excellent research that will advance legal knowledge and practice to the benefit of society.
The School is seeking to appoint up to twelve academic staff at all levels, from new entry positions (including new and emerging academics) through to recognised professorial leaders to work within academic and professional programmes departments. It will consider candidates who have researched, educated or practised in any area of the Law, its theory, processes and practice, although preference will be given to applicants able to contribute to the core subjects of the LLB.

City offers a sector-leading salary, pension scheme and benefits including a comprehensive package of staff training and development.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 5th April 2020

Actively working to promote equal opportunity and diversity.
