As Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, I am delighted you are interested in this leadership opportunity.

Queen’s is a Russell Group university that makes a unique and positive impact locally, nationally and globally – and we invite you to join us on an ambitious programme of work to create new learning and research opportunities for all our students and staff. Our ambition for the future continues to grow and the School of Law – is key to the next phase in our development as a world-class university.

Our Faculty plan focuses on the development of cross Faculty education and research programmes and I am strongly committed to an integrated Faculty approach in its implementation. As a Head of the School of Law you will play a key role in the Faculty leadership team, developing and implementing policies for the whole Faculty as well as leading the School.

We are keen to work with established and emerging leaders who can demonstrate the skills, experience and enthusiasm required to lead a School that builds on strong disciplinary foundations and encompasses areas of activity are that unique to UK HEIs in terms of focus and quality.  The School of Law enjoys an international reputation as a top education and research hub in the field, with particular strengths in commercial law, human rights, criminology as well as public and common law.  It is ranked in the top 200 law schools worldwide and in the top 10 in the UK. With a role to play in the most challenging of contemporary debates, the School of Law at Queen’s is set for greater success.

I am looking forward to taking our plans forward. If you share our vision and you have the leadership skills, enthusiasm and creativity we are looking for, then I encourage you to apply and to work with us on our exciting journey.
