School of Law invites applicants to part-time teaching panel

28 May 2020

UCC School of Law invites applications from suitably qualified individuals with relevant experience who are interested in tutoring and/or lecturing on an hourly occasional part-time basis (not exceeding 6 hours per week).

The School of Law wishes to recruit a panel of occasional part-time lecturers and tutors to support full-time staff in the delivery (including teaching and examining) of programmes for the 2020/21 academic year. 

These part-time lecturing staff will normally have access to shared office space and library facilities for the duration of their contracts, however in light of the current situation with COVID-19, it is likely that most delivery will be online in September 2020.

The hourly rates of pay for lecturing /tutoring for 2020-21* are:

  • €43.03 per hour (Day rate)
  • €58.73 per hour (Evening rate)

*Rates increase to €47.77 (Day rate) and €65.19 (Evening rate) after two years of continuous service on the above rates
