Job Posting: Lecturer in Legal Technology & Innovation / Cardiff University

Dear all,

I hope that the following post might be of interest to some colleagues:

Lecturer in Legal Technology and Innovation
School of Law and Politics / Cardiff University

Advances in technology are likely to represent the largest change and
opportunity for the legal profession in coming years. The move towards online
courts, the use of technology to perform everyday lawyerly tasks and the use
of Artificial Intelligence to analyse and replicate legal decision-making are
all likely to revolutionise the workplace for many of our students.

The School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University is seeking to appoint a
Lecturer (grade 6 / 7) in Legal Technology and Innovation whose research and
teaching explores the impact of digital technology and innovation on law and /
or legal services. This could include specific expertise in Information
Technology Law, the legal consequences and context of artificial intelligence,
the interpretation and significance of 'big data', the role of law in relation
to the digital economy, e-participation and e-government and other issues
concerning emerging digital technologies.

The post holder will be expected to carry out research into the effect of
technology upon access to justice and upon legal services as well as
contributing to our teaching agenda by exploring how the Law curriculum needs
to adapt in light of technological change.

The post holder will also contribute to the teaching of one or more foundation
subjects in Law, supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students, develop
links between the Law and Politics departments within the School and
contribute to the successful administration and management of the School and
its constituent departments.

The successful candidate will have obtained a PhD or equivalent in Law,
Politics/Political Science, Computer Science or an allied field by the time
the appointment begins. They should also have demonstrable potential of
excellence in both research and teaching.

Any queries relating to this post are to be directed to Dr Russell Sandberg,
