This position offers an exciting opportunity to join Lincoln Law School as a Lecturer in Law on the Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice pathway. This post offers an excellent opportunity for a successful applicant to commence or develop their career in Higher Education. The Law School has research strengths in criminal law and criminal justice, international law and international human rights and environmental law and ecological justice. Priority will be given to applicants who have scholarship interests or professional experience in these areas, though we would be pleased to receive applications from those with experience and interests in other areas of law.
This is an opportunity to join a fast-growing, collegiate and friendly Law School. The School has substantially improved its research performance in REF 2021 and maintains an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching and student experience. In the future, the School aims to build on these successes to further develop and improve its research performance, teaching and student experience. The Law School is committed to the quality of its teaching and is committed to the development of the academic and practical parts of its LL.B. programme and is keen to appoint an individual who can support the School to achieve this objective. The School has particular teaching needs in the teaching of legal systems and skills (and would give preference to an individual who demonstrates willingness and ability to lead this important first year module) and the law of tort. We would also like to enhance our pool of colleagues who have professional legal experience and would be particularly interested to receive applications from those who have practised law and could teach civil litigation and/or practical commercial subjects.
The University of Lincoln was named Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2021 and in the same year, named one of the world’s greatest young universities in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings. The University has been awarded gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.
