Lecturer in Law - Hamilton

08 November 2019

Te Piringa - Faculty of Law
Division of Arts, Law, Psychology and Social Sciences

Te Piringa translates as 'the coming together of people'. The Faculty has over 1300 students and 40 staff and is housed in a contemporary, purpose-built facility. The QS World University Rankings rank the Faculty in the top 300 law schools in the world.

The Faculty of Law is looking for a Lecturer whose role will include assisting with the teaching of the BA in Law. The Bachelor of Arts in Law is a non-practising law-based major designed for those who want to gain a foundation in legal knowledge and combine this with significant non-law study.


The successful candidate will contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate papers in both the BA in Law and our other law programmes and therefore should have an interest in one or more of the following areas: Jurisprudence, Public Law & Policy, and Legal Systems & Societies. You will have demonstrated teaching experience, a developing or strong research record and the ability to contribute to postgraduate student supervision.

It is essential that you have a LLB or JD degree or equivalent or an LLM with equivalent professional experience. A PhD is preferable. The ability to communicate effectively with students and staff along with the ability to contribute to faculty and university administration matters.

Current salary range for Lecturers is NZ$75,514 to $90,946 per year.
