Job Description

The UTS Faculty of Law is a dynamic and innovative law school situated in the heart of Sydney, with a strong reputation for high quality legal education and commitment to practice-oriented learning.

Our Faculty is collegial and inclusive, and we aim to reflect the diversity of our student population and the broader community within our staff profile. We welcome applicants who contribute to building that diversity, including Indigenous Australians, people living with disability, those who identify as LGBTIQ+ and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Applicants with parental or other caring responsibilities are encouraged to include a ‘relative to opportunity’ or career disruption/break statement within their application, and may also indicate if they would like the appointment to be less than a full-time role.

UTS proactively supports inclusivity and value diversity through our Wingara Indigenous Employment Strategy, Social Impact Framework and the UTS Access and Inclusion Plan.
