Our students and staff, past, present, and future, are the beating heart of our city and can be found in every corner of every industry and community. We couldn’t exist anywhere else and have shaped the city in which we belong. Working with the people of Liverpool to improve lives and support communities is at the heart of why we were founded and why we exist today.

The Law School at LJMU has a long tradition of marrying academic excellence and practical legal study. You will be based in the School’s award-winning law clinic (Legal Advice Centre, LAC).

The work of the LAC has now been embedded into the undergraduate curriculum to provide valuable experience and skills development for our undergraduate and postgraduate students.  

You will be working in a vibrant, modern Law School and you will be required to demonstrate excellence and innovation in both teaching and legal practice. The School has a large suite of LLB, LLM and LPC programmes. The LLB has been adapted to include elements of preparation towards new routes to qualification under the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). The successful candidate will support the delivery of a range of Law undergraduate and postgraduate modules.
