City, University of London
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 the UK 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 mid-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, 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.

The Lecturer or Senior Lecturer will assist in the delivery of course modules and associated assessments; support and mentor postgraduate students; and contribute to curriculum development and innovation.

For appointment at Senior Lecturer level, candidates will be able to demonstrate significant experience in legal practice and/or of delivering excellent education with course administration and course design and development.
