The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world’s largest law schools. With an impressive history dating back to 1876, we employ over 900 staff and have over 14,000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, along with an alumni network in excess of 100,000. We were the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and in 2012 we gained university title. With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, we continuously focus on developing the best legal and business minds. In 2016, we opened our leading Business School, further enhancing our reputation as a full service legal, business and educational training specialist, operating from campuses throughout the UK, Berlin and Hong Kong and an Online campus.

What really sets us apart from other universities is the guiding principle that future lawyers and business leaders should learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context, with plenty of practical interactive engagement. That’s why we keep our contact hours high and our teaching groups small.

We we are seeking to strengthen our bank of Visiting Lecturers at our Sheffield campus. They will work for the University on an hourly rate basis, on a Worker contract.  We are ideally looking for qualified Solicitors or Barristers who can demonstrate successful legal practice experience, or experienced law tutors who currently teach across the range of programmes we offer.

The University delivers an extensive portfolio of both postgraduate and undergraduate law programmes including the LPC, GDL, BPC & LLB and we are looking for candidates that can demonstrate expertise in corresponding subject matters. You will enjoy being challenged (by students and course content in equal measure) and be able to adapt to the different learning styles of students and methods of course delivery.

You will be eager to share your expertise and become involved in all aspects of enhancing the student experience within our campuses. The role will also include marking in-course assignments and final assessments, as well as supporting students and dealing with queries.
