Lecturer in Law

Aston Law School

Location:  Aston University Main Campus
Salary:  £38,474 to £52,841 per annum
Contract Type:  Permanent
Basis:  Full Time
Closing Date:  23.59 hours BST on Wednesday 14 June 2023
Interview Date:  Thursday 29 June 2023
Reference:  0343-23
Release Date:  Friday 26 May 2023

Aston Law School’s mission is to be distinctive in its combination of academic rigour with practical insight, for ‘future ready’ LLB and LLM graduates. We do so as The Guardian’s University of the Year 2020, with Gold TEF status, and as one of the leading universities for Entrepreneurship and Social Mobility.  

Our research addresses contemporary issues across a spectrum of topics, the most relevant of which for this role are: Global Commerce and Finance; Risk, Regulation and Governance; and the Rights of the Individual.  The successful candidate will be supported in their research and encouraged to make a distinctive contribution to our collegiate and vibrant research community.  Our degree programmes teach a combination of ‘traditional’ law subjects alongside creative and innovative subjects that provide the academic grounding for skills and attributes of modern lawyers.  We do so in three broad pathways: the Law of Business, the Business of Law and the Future of Law; and by drawing on our links with businesses and the legal profession.  

We have plans for our strategic growth that involve recruitment to join our colleagues who are committed to making a difference in research and teaching Technology Law and Policy (to include the Regulation of AI and Emerging Technologies, Digital Rights, Data Protection and Cyber Crime).

Finally, in addition to being a team player and committed to social mobility, the successful candidates will recognise the importance of excellent student support.

Aston University and Aston Law School are committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter recognised by a bronze award. 

We will therefore adopt an inclusive recruitment process which involves sharing interview questions with short-listed candidates in advance (and a promise not to deviate from the subject matter of those questions); encouraging candidates, if they wish, to attend interview with notes of their preparation; and to provide feedback to all short-listed candidates. 

This post is available to start immediately.  Informal enquiries about them should be addressed to Jonathan Fortnam (Dean of Aston Law School) by email
