Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Law

Salary range: 
£35,211- £40,792 per annum (Lecturer) or £42,036 - £50,132 (Senior Lecturer).

School of Law and Social Sciences 

Suffolk Law is growing – both in terms of portfolio and team members.  We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified and student-centred lecturer or senior lecturer to contribute to the teaching and/or leadership of our law programmes. We invite applications from candidates to teach at least one core legal subjects on our undergraduate law programme.  We are particularly interested to hear from candidates who can lead our Research Methods in Law module but, as a new and expanding programme, we would welcome applications from other candidates too.  The successful applicant will assume leadership responsibilities on the undergraduate law programme. The post offers the opportunity to join a friendly, supportive team in the iconic Waterfront building overlooking the marina at Ipswich’s Neptune Quay.

Law is a fast-growing subject at the University of Suffolk and we are very ambitious and have big plans for the future.  We currently offer LLB (Hons) Law, LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology, LLB (Hons) Law with Sociology, LLB (Hons) Law with Politics, LLB (Hons) Law with Business Management and BSc (Hons) Criminology and Law.  This is an exciting time to be joining our institution as we lay the foundations for solid and cohesive legal education in the county of Suffolk.

The School offers a portfolio of law, criminology, politics, sociology and social work courses, driven by the interests and passions of an inter-disciplinary staff team.  Our School is all about making a difference in the world.  This is reflected in the range of subjects we teach, our interest in social justice, and our focus on how to make life better and fairer.  You will join a school with around 30 staff and some 500 students.  Through teaching, research and collaborative enterprise, we focus on student-centred learning and progression, and meaningful engagement with wider professional and academic communities.
