The School is also actively engaged with the surveying profession, including accreditation to the RICS and running the RICS/RAU Land Price Series.
We are seeking to recruit an ambitious and innovative Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Practitioner with the specialist knowledge to teach law as applied to the real estate and rural land management sectors, focusing on teaching the basic understanding and principles of the English legal system together with tort and contract law before moving on to the law of Real Property and Landlord and Tenant law.

This expertise will have ideally been acquired through academic practice and/or experience in the industry.
