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. During this period 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 School has over 2,500 students enrolled for the Bachelor of Laws, the Graduate Diploma in Law (which originated at City), Master of Laws, PhD, and barrister and solicitor vocational training programmes. Our academic and professional programmes are, for the first time, housed together in a new building.

A large majority of the School’s academic staff are, or were, practising lawyers and many are leaders in their academic and professional fields. During the next five years, the School will increase the number of academic staff significantly, whilst holding student numbers at current levels. This will allow increased capacity for research, education and a strong focus on our students’ experience. This is an excellent opportunity for outstanding candidates to join The City Law School at an exciting time in its history.
