Why work for ULaw?

We are seeking to recruit an ambitious individual who wants to forge or continue a meaningful career in programme & student leadership and teaching in Higher Education. You will be a qualified barrister or solicitor by background.

The position includes a generous time allowance for the role of Programme & Student Lead on our Graduate Diploma in Law, MA in Law and new SQE Conversion Programmes (the latter of which will replace the GDL and MA in Law in their current form when they commence for the last time in the Autumn). You will work with our Senior Management Team in leading our students and enhancing their learning experience. You will be supported in your role by MA in Law Lead.

Teaching and leading in Higher Education can be challenging but rewarding and we are looking to recruit highly motivated individuals who are ready to make a positive contribution.

In return, we will guarantee you a supportive and friendly environment where considerable opportunities for learning and career development exist for the right people.

Are you ready to join our dynamic team and help contribute to our success?
