Deadline for applications: Wednesday 22 September 2021 (5pm)

To be eligible to apply, you must be a current research student in the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford.  Please also see our general page about the GTA programme.


Each GTA will be paid an honorarium of £2,137.80 (subject to national 2021-22 pay uplift when finalised) by the Faculty, paid in three termly instalments.  The GTA is expected to provide up to 48 hours of undergraduate tutorial teaching (for colleges) and/or provide teaching support over the course of the academic year.  They may work up to the weekly limit on paid work specified by the Faculty (8 hours per week, or a common-sense average across the year), which includes preparation and marking time. 

The teaching itself will be paid for by colleges at the Senior Tutors' Committee rates (from £27.65 per tutorial hour).  Colleges will also pay for collection setting and marking. 

Duties other than college teaching

If required by the Convenor, the GTA role may also include tasks not directly connected to the GTA's own teaching, such as: answering queries from students on behalf of the Convenor, organising tutorials for other tutors, or updating the core reading list.  Such work will be agreed at the time of appointment, including the number of hours of work, and payment will be made upon the submission of approved timesheets.  It will be remunerated by the Faculty at Grade 6 point 1 (currently £15.37 per hour but subject to national 2021-22 pay uplift when finalised) plus holiday pay.

How to apply

Please write by e-mail to by the deadline stated above, indicating clearly for which subject or subjects you wish to be considered, and outlining your suitability for the position. Please also attach a brief CV.

GTAs from previous years may reapply.

The selection process

Applications and references will be sent to the relevant Convenor, and eligible candidates will be interviewed by a panel, with at least two members of the teaching group.  In the event of any subject having a large number of applicants, the subject group members may draw up a shortlist and only interview the shortlisted candidates.
