Law at Goldsmiths

Goldsmiths is in the process of launching a new and innovative LLB Law degree.

The project is being supported by a team spanning the academic and professional services and a long term strategic plan for this new subject area has been agreed by our senior management team. Our first student cohort is planned to arrive in September 2019 with this newly created role central to the delivery of appropriate administrative functions to create an outstanding student experience.

Students will be able to learn about specialist areas of Law particularly relevant to Goldsmiths’ rich heritage in the creative arts, innovation, and social engagement: covering topics such as Media Law, Art Law, Creativity and Intellectual Property Law, Commercial Law, Disruptive Technologies, Criminology and Human Rights, and Criminal Law.

Summary:

In advance of Law students arriving the post holder will be expected to work alongside the Inaugural Professor to establish our offer and contribute to a wide ranging set of preparation activity ahead of the first student cohort. Initially this will involve the delivery of event and communications planning to support the conversion of offer holders and prepare them for arrival. You’ll also be involved in timetabling preparation, academic staff recruitment and other general activity to prepare for the arrival of students and staff.

The role holder will establish high quality administrative services by providing support across a variety of areas. Once our first Law students have arrived, in addition to day-to-day teaching administration, the role has particular responsibility for supporting the submission, marking and recording of grades of coursework and examinations; maintaining attendance records and following up student absences, working closely with tutors and supporting the administration of student feedback. The role holder will also be central to the planning and development of an excellent student experience by acting as a first point of contact for students; to triage student welfare issues, resolve low level complaints and make adjustments to programme administration based on student feedback. 

The post holder will be a key member of the team and will be required to establish good working relationships with academic and administrative staff with whom they will work closely. The ideal candidate will have an enthusiastic and proactive approach and will be able to work independently as well as part of a team within a friendly environment.
