The University of Exeter appoints a new Head of Law School



The University of Exeter Law School is a highly respected institution located in the city of Exeter, United Kingdom. It is part of the University of Exeter, which is ranked in the top 200 universities in the world. The Law School offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and research programs in various areas of law, including commercial law, criminal law, human rights law, international law, and more.

The Law School has a strong reputation for its research excellence and is home to several research centers and institutes, including the Centre for European Legal Studies, the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, and the Centre for Maritime Law. 

Society worked closely with the University of Exeter to identify and attract the most qualified candidates for the position of Head of Law School. Through a rigorous and thorough search process, we have assisted in appointing Professor Clair Gammage to lead the Law School and drive its continued success.

Clair holds an LLB and LLM International Law (Nottingham), and a MSc Socio-Legal Studies and PhD in Law (Bristol). She was formerly Associate Professor/Reader at the University of Bristol, where she also acted as the Faculty Education Director for Undergraduate Studies in Social Sciences in Law (2021-2), School Education Director in Law (2020-1) and the Director for Employability (2015-18). Clair then joined Exeter Law School in 2022 as Professor in International Commercial Law.

Upon her appointment, Clair commented: 

“It is an honour and privilege to have been appointed as Head of the Law School. I am looking forward to leading our community through what I hope will be an exciting and ambitious new era for the Law School. Our community of scholars and students is at the heart our Law School and as a collective we shall continue to cultivate an environment that sparks curiosity, pushes interdisciplinary boundaries, and advances social justice. Our culture shall be characterised by compassion and the promotion of the highest academic standards in all that we do for the benefit of those within and beyond the Law School.”

We are confident that Professor Gammage's expertise and leadership will help the University of Exeter Law School to continue its tradition of excellence in legal education and research. We wish her all the best in her new role.
