Research Fellowship opportunities at the Bingham Centre
The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law was founded in 2010 in honour of the late Lord Bingham of Cornhill, one of the greatest judges of his generation. It is part of the British Institute for International and Comparative Law (BIICL), the foremost independent research and discussion body of its kind in the UK. The Centre's activities have expanded rapidly since its foundation and it is now engaged in a wide range of research projects, events, publications and training and has a significant impact on policy developments.

Research Fellow in Citizenship Education and the Rule of Law, Part-time 0.6
The Centre is seeking to appoint a strong candidate as a Research Fellow to lead our work with schools. Over the last two years the Centre has very successfully developed and piloted a project that introduces rule of law concepts in schools by exploring topical debates relevant to the citizenship curriculum through the rule of law. The project provides schools with resources including lesson plans with case studies, curriculum-relevant issues where democracy, justice and rights arise in different contexts such as immigration, criminal justice, cultural and religious diversity, rights to a fair trial, equality before the law, the abuse of power and human rights.
The Centre wishes to appoint someone for one year, part-time (0.6) in the first instance. Secondments will also be considered. The person appointed will also be expected to make a contribution to the research, training, outreach and administrative activities of the Centre as need be.
