Regent’s Park is a small, friendly, fairly informal community, but one with high academic standards and aspirations. Altogether at Regent's Park we have about 120 undergraduates, 70 postgraduates, and a small number of visiting students.
Law is one of our longest established subjects, stretching back into the nineteenth century. Each year we currently admit two students to the BA in Jurisprudence, and also invite applications to postgraduate degrees in law such as the BCL, MJur, MPhil and MSt. In 2019/20 we anticipate that we will have six undergraduate students reading law including two freshers, with two in each of the second and third years. Many of our law students have done very well over the years. Among our law alumnae we count a number of senior academics, some QCs and Judges, and many practicing in a variety of professional contexts. The college has its own Law Society run by undergraduates, most of whom are reading for other degrees.
For the last nine years our undergraduates have been looked after through a memorandum of understanding with two different colleges which has designated one of their Fellows as our Director of Studies. This arrangement has allowed our students to be integrated into the cohort and add variety to the whole group, and they have certainly gained a good deal by being part of this larger whole. This arrangement comes to an end in Trinity 2019 and we are seeking to make alternative plans for 2019/20 onwards.
Therefore, we are seeking to appoint a suitably qualified member of the Law faculty as our new Director of Studies, who will arrange teaching, collections, monitor progress for our undergraduates, and also offer some pastoral support to our graduate students in Law. If there are ways that a new Director of Studies, based in another college, would be able to help our students feel part of a larger cohort, this would be desirable.
We offer a stipend of £5,000 pa, with all teaching, setting and marking of collections, etc., paid for at the Senior Tutor's rate in addition. A teaching room can usually be available in college and dining is also available.
Further information or expressions of interest should be directed to the Senior Tutor, Dr Anthony Clarke, email@example.com by Monday 2 September.
