Law is a key area of strength for the University and is focused on our undergraduate programme, the LLB, which is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland. Law colleagues also contribute to other professional disciplines including accountancy, journalism and engineering. Integral to the work of our law team is our award-winning Law Clinic, which provides legal advice to the community. 

GCU Law is growing and the Department of Economics and Law seeks a Lecturer in Law to contribute across our core Law modules. Applications are particularly welcome from individuals with experience in private law subjects including Family Law, Trusts and Succession.

With a PhD in a relevant subject (or nearing completion), you will have experience of delivering excellent teaching. We expect you will be engaged in research with the ability to make a meaningful contribution to the research profile of the Department. You will work as part of a close-knit programme team and be expected to teach and manage modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level, take on leadership roles as appropriate, and engage in further development of the subject area. To do this you’ll possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
