Teaching Assistant Positions 2016
Tue, 15 Sep 2015 - 15:00

The UCT Law Faculty hopes to appoint a number of LLB graduates to act as teaching assistants during 2016.


As a teaching assistant you will be expected to tutor LLB students, carry out a certain amount of marking and assist the students in your classes. In the Commercial Law Department you will also be involved in the courses that the department offers to non-law students.  In addition you will be expected to fulfil a number of administrative responsibilities, including the invigilation of exams and tests (outside ordinary work hours). Although this is a full-time position, you will be given substantial time in which to pursue your own research interests. We strongly encourage TAs to register for graduate research degrees; candidates who plan to do so will be given preference in the selection process. TAs qualify for the staff fee rebate.
