What do our staff think?

The team has been amazing! They create a supportive environment, and the students and the people of Jersey have just been excellent. I’m really happy that I did my teaching fellowship here, and this now is my second home.


We have loved having our Teaching Fellows here this year, and for anybody who’s thinking about joining us next year it is such a great team to join, at such a good time. They will get fantastic teaching experience with engaged students in small groups, and they will get to know each and every one of their students, too. They will also be able to get experience organising conferences and get academic management experience that they just wouldn’t find anywhere else in the same way. Overall, it’s a great law school and a fantastic on-island living experience.
