VACANCY: Director of Studies, Institute of Law, Jersey

Director of Studies

Institute of Law, Jersey 


Institute of Law, JerseyApplications are invited for the post of Director of Studies at the Institute of Law, Jersey, in the Channel Islands. The Institute’s main teaching provision is the Jersey Law Course and tuition to LLB students enrolled on the University of London International Programmes.


The successful candidate will provide academic leadership in this small but ambitious law school as it enters its next phase of development. The Director will develop and implement strategic and operational plans for expansion. Experience of student recruitment, especially in overseas markets, is important. The Director is expected to contribute to teaching and to develop research and scholarship projects related to one or more of the Institute’s areas of interest (laws of the Channel Islands, mixed jurisdictions, the challenges of small jurisdictions and off-shore finance).


This is a full-time post. The Director will be expected to spend a substantial amount of time in Jersey and to be a visible presence to students (who study mostly at weekends). Some international travel may be required. A fractional or secondment appointment would be considered to secure an outstanding candidate.

The post is at a level of seniority comparable to reader/chair level at a UK university, which will be reflected in the remuneration package.


The post is available from 1 September 2013. 


Informal Enquiries: Informal enquiries may be made to the current Director of Studies, Andrew Le Sueur (Andrew.lesueur@lawinstitute.ac.je), whose 4-year period of secondment from Queen Mary, University of London, will expire in September 2013.
