    Working in the Department of Law, you will plan, deliver and assess a range of modules including the company and commercial law components of our undergraduate and postgraduate law degrees, and, if possible, also on the intellectual property and/or employment law components, using a variety of technologies and approaches to deliver a vibrant education.

    This is a career-defining opportunity at the heart of a department that has an established reputation for the teaching of law, and also for the success of its graduates. You will join a collegiate team of academics, whose research interests provide exciting opportunities for students to benefit from research-led teaching, workshops, seminars, as well as forward-thinking studies, particularly of the law of the future.

    The Person

    You will hold an LLB or LLM, and will either be working towards a doctorate or will have a legal qualification as a solicitor or barrister, and have recent experience of legal practice in England and Wales, or in commerce or industry. You will also bring with you a recognised teaching or learning qualification. If you have not already achieved the relevant level of UKPSF recognition, we will need you to do so before the end of your probation period.

    On a personal level, going above and beyond to deliver exceptional teaching and support to our students will be your core motivation. You will use your professional experience to promote integrated professional practice across everything you do, imparting practical legal knowledge to students that they will take with them in their future careers.

    Constantly seeking to improve, you will scrutinise your own work, build private and public sector networks, and work collaboratively to enhance the Faculty's reputation.

    The Faculty

    The Faculty of Business and Social Sciences combines Kingston Business School and the School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences. Driven by a forward- thinking approach, the faculty is dynamic, innovative and ambitious. We focus on business and social challenges that impact us all such as decision making, sustainable development and individual resilience.

    Together, the schools strive to nurture socially responsible, well-informed and actively engaged members of society who graduate as adaptable, ambitious and solutions-focused professionals.

    Practical experience and real-life learning is at the heart of our degrees. Our graduates will be equipped with the skills to manage and navigate a world that needs employees to be digitally skilled and to have highly developed people management skills, emotional intelligence as well as innovative, entrepreneurial drive.

    School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences

    The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences offers a range of courses in politics, economics, human rights, international relations, law, psychology and criminology. Students graduate equipped with the theoretical tools, hands- on experience and critical thinking necessary to understand individual and social group behaviour, problem solve and influence the future. Globally admired for their human rights, religion and immigration expertise, staff are genuinely enterprising and international in their approach and flexible in meeting the evolving demands of the wider world – the kind of respected experts who will enthuse about, contribute to, and champion your work.

    Professional bodies, including the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), recognise and accredit our courses.
