The University of Law is one of the UK’s leading providers of legal education and training, working right at the heart of the legal profession. We bring together teaching of the highest quality, a focus on practical skills and innovative learning styles to deliver perfect preparation for life in legal practice and ongoing professional development.

We are in an ongoing, exciting period of growth and expansion, as a result of that we are looking for outstanding people to join our committed and passionate team of professionals.


Do you have the communications skills to inspire the next generation of our profession? We are currently looking for Visiting Lecturers to teach on the civil litigation team on the Bar Professional Training Course at our London Bloomsbury campus.

We are looking for qualified solicitors or barristers with a genuine passion for quality and excellence, who can demonstrate successful legal practice experience. You will enjoy being challenged (by students and course content in equal measure) and be able to adapt to the different learning styles of students and methods of course delivery. Teaching will include both knowledge (civil litigation, remedies and evidence)and skills (drafting, opinion writing, conference, negotiation and advocacy).The role will also include marking in-course assignments and final assessments.

We select all of our BPTC students by way of interview and advocacy test. We have enviably high pupillage success rates: 71%of our full-time UK/EEA BPTC students graduating in 2017 secured a pupillage within one year of successfully completing the course.

To apply for this role it is essential you are a qualified lawyer (either a solicitor or barrister) in England and Wales.
