Call for Expressions of Interest to Join the IALS Advisory Council

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London (IALS) supports and promotes legal research in its broadest sense, both nationally and internationally, provides services to the law schools of the University of London, and brings together the academic and the practising legal professions for the benefit of the legal system as a whole. 

IALS is currently seeking expressions of interest from established UK legal academics to fill a number of vacancies on its Advisory Council.

The role

The members of the Advisory Council are drawn from academia, the judiciary, academic libraries, the postgraduate student community, other stakeholders, and from the academic staff of IALS itself. The Council advises the Director of IALS on its aims and objectives, strategic and operational plans, and opportunities for collaboration, research promotion and facilitation. In addition, the Council considers reports from the various Committees of IALS and advises the Dean of the School of Advanced Study on the appointment of the Director and on reviews of the Institute. The new Chair of the Advisory Council is Lord Lloyd-Jones of the Supreme Court.   

The IALS Advisory Council meets twice a year, usually in November and May. Members are required to attend these meetings and participate in the discussions.
