Sutherland Fellow in French Law 2021/22 – French Public Law II

Sutherland School of Law of University College Dublin (UCD) is looking to appoint a Sutherland Fellow in French Law from January to June 2022 to teach French Public Law II (Introduction to Administrative Law) to second year students enrolled in its (opens in a new window)BCL with French Law and (opens in a new window)Dual Degree BCL/Maîtrise programmes. The students enrolled in this module are a relatively small group and are very motivated and eager to learn.

The delivery of the module would have to be mostly face-to-face at UCD Belfield campus (some small degree of online delivery could be considered). The specific timetable and delivery details would be agreed with the successful candidate and subject to wider timetabling constraints and public health guidelines.

Applications are invited from candidates with expertise in French Public Law and able to teach in French language, while also being able to communicate and occasionally explain concepts in English. The successful applicant would preferably have a PhD (or be close to completing one), or have substantial professional experience in the subject matter. Interest/experience in teaching French legal methodology and in handling highly diverse groups of students (e.g. with different cultural, language and national backgrounds) is desirable.

The position is temporary for the Academic Year 2021/22, but continuity beyond this academic year may be considered. Remuneration for teaching and marking will be in line with UCD rates for occasional lecturers and with intern examiner rates, respectively.

We welcome applications from everyone, including those who identify with any of the protected characteristics that are set out in our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy. The university adheres to a range of equality, diversity and inclusion policies. We encourage applicants to consult UCD’s equality, diversity and inclusion policies here.

Applications: Interested applicants should send a one-page cover letter and CV as a one single pdf document by email to (opens in a new window)law.office@ucd.ie indicating in the subject: “Sutherland Fellow in French Law 2021/22”.
