The Legal Academic's Handbook Paperback / softback


How do you become a legal academic? What skills and experience are necessary to progress your career?

In which ways could you enrich your job?With contributions from more than 60 established academics, this handbook offers essential guidance on starting, pursuing, managing and advancing a career in legal academia.

Whether you are looking for ways to overcome challenges or to seek out new opportunities, this book provides practical advice through relevant research, personal experience, and anecdotal evidence. Four fictional academics who want to pursue different career paths in different academic institutions are introduced at the start of the book.

Each chapter then delves into a specific topic from the perspective of one of these academics, including: making the transition from legal practice, investigating gender issues, gaining recognition for teaching, building a research profile, and organising a specialist conference.
