Based in one of the UK’s largest legal hubs, in a great global city, Manchester Metropolitan University’s Law School offers outstanding opportunities for experienced barristers to make the move into higher education for a fulfilling role in shaping and supporting the next generation of barristers.
Manchester Law School, is a leading modern university law school, recognised in the UK and internationally for generating transformative social change through law. We integrate high-quality practitioner expertise, educational excellence and world-leading research in key areas.
The School has strong relationships across the Northern Circuit and with leading law firms. We work closely with organisations including the CPS, Support for Courts and the Greater Manchester Law Centre. These relationships support an extensive pro bono network, mentoring schemes and networking opportunities for our students.
We value professional experience and potential candidates will include qualified barristers who do not necessarily have teaching experience, but can demonstrate a commitment to obtain a teaching qualification and possess equivalent significant practice at the Bar. The role will allow successful candidates to step away from the day to day practice at the Bar, while maintaining links with the profession and currency of practice.
We have broad needs and will require from this recruitment round successful candidates with a broadly Civil (particularly Family) or Criminal Practice focus. There are also opportunities to contribute to other programmes within the School as required.
While most posts are offered at the University’s Senior Lecturer grade, there is also an opportunity for us to make an appointment at Reader level for the right candidate, with appropriate expertise and experience of academic (or appropriate practitioner) leadership, publications and/or unit/programme development.
To apply, please submit your CV and Covering Letter via our application portal. For informal enquiries, please contact Andrew Francis (Head of School) on Andrew.Francis@mmu.ac.uk
