The School

Swansea University is undergoing a period of significant development and expansion. The University doubled the size of its estate with the opening of its new Bay Campus in 2015 and is a UK top 30, research-intensive institution, ranking 26th in REF2014. The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law is undergoing an equally exciting period of development under its Head, Professor Elwen Evans QC, and plans to move to a new, sector-leading Law School by 2020.

The School is achieving significant and sustained growth, and has an ambitious development plan that seeks to establish Swansea as a leading centre for the application of technology in legal education and research, with the aim of driving a “LegalTech” cluster in Wales. 

The Role

The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law seeks to appoint an exceptional Associate Professor in Law and Technology who will help to drive LegalTech research and teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, with particular focus on ethics and the regulation of technology.

The School is recognised as a leading centre for legal education and applied research and for its innovative approach to responding to the challenges posed by the application of technology in legal services. 

The School’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Law leads the LegalTech Wales initiative, an emerging network of legal practitioners, technology companies and other organisations interested in the application and impact of technology in legal practice. 

Interviews will be held during w/c 2nd April and 9th April.
