The Law School at LJMU has a long tradition of marrying academic excellence and practical legal study. The School has a large suite of LLB, LLM and LPC programmes. The LLB has been adapted to include elements of preparation towards new routes to qualification under the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination.

The School is particularly proud of the contribution that its award-winning Legal Advice Centre, which is one of the largest in Europe, has made to both the University and the regional community. The work of the Legal Advice Centre has now been embedded into the undergraduate curriculum to provide valuable experience and skills development for our undergraduate and postgraduate students. A dedicated Grade 10 for Clinical Legal Education will be appointed to lead the Legal Advice Centre and to lead on the external engagement activities of the School (this is a separate role to the one advertised here).

The School is the home to the Centre for the Study of Law in Theory and Practice (LTAP). Whilst embracing a wide range of research interests the Centre has particular strengths in Public International Law and Human Rights, European Law, International Criminal Law, Banking Regulation and Finance Law. The School submitted successfully to the REF 2014 and 2021.  

You will be working in a vibrant, modern and dynamic Law School and you will be required to demonstrate excellent leadership and innovation in both teaching & learning and in the promotion of research-informed teaching. You will provide leadership and line management to academic staff within the Law Subject Area with respect to all academic activities, including teaching, research, and enterprise. You will report to the Director of the School of Law.
