Part-time lecturing at UWE


Ever fancied dipping a toe into the water of academia?

UWE Bristol occasionally has a need for “Visiting Lecturers” (also known as “Associate Lecturers”) to help with teaching a range of legal subject areas. These are usually part-time positions, often one semester at a time, where a lawyer currently in practice comes in to help the lecturing team at UWE by delivering agreed sessions (lectures, tutorials, etc) and/or assisting with marking assessments. Topics may range from legal principles for undergraduates through to specialist topics for post-graduate students.

UWE’s Built Environment team is currently looking for an Associate Lecturer for the upcoming semester, late January to early April 2020. The details are a bit flexible, but there is a desire to find someone who is available Monday afternoons to help with some “team teaching” of workshop sessions involving a range of basic legal content and commercial skills. The role would be paid on an hourly basis, with details TBC. There is no specific experience required, though some background in Construction Law or Property Law may be helpful.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact UWE’s Scott Silbereis at scott2.silbereis@uwe.ac.uk (or 0117 328 3048) to arrange a brief informal discussion (confidentially, if needed). Scott is now a Senior Lecturer, having taken up an opportunity like this one some years ago; he would be happy to discuss the current opportunity or longer-term options, as appropriate.
