The Faculty of Law at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is one of the most dynamic and successful law schools in Asia. With more than 1,300 students enrolled in its programmes (LLB, LLM, JD, Postgraduate Certificate in Laws and MPhil / PhD) it is the largest provider of legal education in Hong Kong. Its strength in research was recognised in the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Hong Kong University Grants Committee when it was ranked ahead of all other law schools in Hong Kong with 64% of its research ranked as “world leading” or “internationally significant”.

 

In line with its strategy for planned growth, the Faculty of Law invites applications for appointment as Professor, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor. In recruiting new colleagues, the Faculty’s principal consideration is always excellence, and so expressions of interest are welcome from scholars in all fields of law. However, applicants with interests in the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply: Energy Law; Chinese Law (PRC); Company Law; Contract; Tort; Land Law; Equity and Trusts; Intellectual Property; Family Law.

 

All professors are expected to contribute to research, teaching and service. Applicants for appointment as Professor must have a demonstrated record of leadership in all three areas. Applicants for appointment as Associate Professor should be able to demonstrate potential for leadership in all three areas.

 

The Faculty has a record of high-quality teaching. Applicants at all levels will be expected to demonstrate their capacity as teachers as part of the recruitment process.

 

The Faculty has a strong international outlook with nearly twenty jurisdictions (by origin or training) reflected in its academic staff. The Faculty is committed to fostering diversity in its recruitment and encourages applications from all candidates whose background and experience will enhance the diversity of our faculty.

 

Appointments will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years initially, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later. Further information about the Faculty is available at http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/law.
