Reader in Law - G823
 

Closing date:  16 September 2018

Newcastle Law School seeks to strengthen the School’s senior team by appointing a Readership in Law. The successful candidate will provide leadership in a core area of the legal curriculum (we are particularly interested in private lawyers taken to include those willing to teach in areas such as Commercial Law, Land Law, Obligations and Remedies) providing strong research leadership in a central area of legal scholarship and enable Newcastle Law School’s excellence to be developed. The successful candidate will be expected to provide strategic leadership in addressing the challenges posed by the changing external environment and will enable focus on the introduction of more problem-based learning techniques to address skills training needs.

 

This is an opportunity to join one of the UK’s most successful Law Schools, with a strong research culture. In REF 2014 70% of its outputs were adjudged to be world leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*), with 21% of the Schools outputs being rated world leading (4*), and we are committed to impact and research with relevance. The School that the candidate will join is a centre of internationally recognised research excellence.  Likewise, the School has a long-standing and demonstrable commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, including a strong commitment to research led teaching.

 

The post is available immediately to commence on a mutually agreed date.
