Senior Lecturer (Law)
Grade 9 (£43,434 to £50,296)
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 across Civil and Criminal, and particularly welcome those with candidates with a Criminal Practice focus in this round. There are also opportunities to contribute to other programmes within the School as required.
Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to supporting the rights, responsibilities, dignity, health and wellbeing of staff and students through our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
We promote applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of background, belief or identity, recognising the benefits that a diverse organisation can bring. We particularly encourage applications from Black and Minority Ethnic candidates, who we recognise are underrepresented in this area.
We recognise the benefits and importance of an environment that supports flexible working and are open to conversations about this throughout the application process.
