Warwick Law School seeks to grow our team of scholars working in commercial law to contribute to our distinctive ‘law in context’ approach. Candidates should have expertise in any aspect of Commercial Law, including general Commercial Law, International Sale of Goods and Commercial Conflict of Laws. Ability and willingness to teach company law or French law would be an advantage. As our teaching is research-led, all academic colleagues are expected to be research active.
Successful candidates are expected to participate across the School's core activities, including enhancement of student experience, and discharging administrative and pastoral duties.
Founded in 1968, Warwick Law School is proud of its pluralist approach to legal scholarship. We offer the LLB, LLB with German/French Law, joint degrees with Sociology, Business, Humanities, and a joint Politics, Philosophy and Law degree. Masters’ programmes include International Economic Law, International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation, International Development Law and Human Rights, International Commercial Law, and Advanced Legal Studies.
Our quality teaching has been recognised with two National Teaching Fellowships and Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence. We are committed to innovative and high-quality teaching within a broad and contextual curriculum. We are currently planning a new undergraduate curriculum, to take our critical and contextual approach to the next level.
As set out on our website, the School hosts four Research Centres, several research clusters, and is part of two cross-disciplinary Centres. Our body of research students and post-doctoral researchers, working across all these areas, is thriving.
Research conducted within the Law School is often world-leading. The School was ranked 10th overall in the UK REF 2014, 6th for research environment, and 7th for the quality of published research. Reflective of our ‘law in context’ ethos, we are committed to maximizing research impact through public engagement and activities designed to generate social and legal change.
Equality, diversity and inclusion
Warwick Law School is committed to recruiting and supporting staff with protected characteristics, as defined by defined by the Equality Act 2010. We are already highly diverse and seek to strengthen this. We are actively embedding EDI into all our activities to strengthen our inclusive and welcoming community. Around 40% of our undergraduates, and over 60% of our postgraduates, are international (including the EU). Over 60% of our undergraduates, and nearly 70% of our postgraduates, identify as BAME. Warwick Law School values widening participation: 15-20% of our undergraduates arrive with contextual offers, and we are proud to be the leading department at Warwick in this area.
The School currently holds the Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative recognising the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equity.
