LUMS Seeks a Dean for its New Law School
Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) invites nominations and applications for the founding Dean of its new School of Law, the Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law.
LUMS was established in 1985 as a not-for-profit university and has since become Pakistan’s premiere educational institution. The University currently consists of three Schools — the Suleman Dawood School of Business, the Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering. The University has announced plans to launch an independent School of Law, the Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law, as its fourth School, and a stand-alone building for the School is currently under construction. The Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law will grow out of the existing Department of Law & Policy, which has been functioning since 2004, and offers a 5-year joint B.A.-LL.B. undergraduate programme (degree accredited by the Pakistan Bar Council).
As the School’s Founding Dean, the position offers a unique opportunity to shape legal education not only at LUMS but in Pakistan. As the administrative head of the School and a key member of the University leadership team, the position holds the potential for significant personal and institutional impact. The successful candidate for Dean should have demonstrated leadership skills, administrative competence, scholarly and research excellence, and institution-building potential. The candidate should have a strong commitment to research, higher education, public service and the ability, drive and capacity to transform the department into an independent school. Outstanding senior scholars and legal practitioners are encouraged to apply.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: creating and consolidating a culture of intellectual scholarship; ensuring delivery of high quality academic programmes; creating a research focus that is intellectually challenging, current and socially relevant; developing the School as an attractive recruiting ground for high caliber academics; establishing international contacts and research linkages; networking and enhancing partnerships with internal and external constituencies, including the university, alumni, policy makers and other users of academic research; and assisting in raising funds for the School.
The applicants should submit a letter of application, a copy of current curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references (preferably electronically) to:
