Warwick welcomes six new teaching fellows
Warwick Law School is delighted to welcome five new teaching fellows to our team.
Van Anh joins us from the University of Durham where she taught Intellectual Property on their LLB and LLM degrees. Here at Warwick she will teaching seminars on Foundations of EU law and Global IP Law and Policy to our LLB cohort and lecturing LLMs on International IP Law and Policy.
She chose to study law because it is intellectually challenging and personally fulfilling; plus it has enhanced her career options allowing her to work in different industries. Since joining Warwick, Van Anh told us the most enjoyable part of her role so far has been “interacting with students, sharing my legal knowledge with them and at the same time, being intrigued by their questions.” Her advice to students studying at the Law School is to do lots of reading and participate in class in order to get the most out of the course.
Alongside those listed above, Dr Sheharyar Hamid, a former Warwick Law student, was appointed as a senior teaching fellow, returning to his Warwick roots earlier this year. He told us, “I am in a very unique position, I have been associated with Warwick in one form or another for the last 10 years. I came here to do my LLM in International Corporate Governance and Financial regulation in 2009, ended up doing a PhD (finishing in 2014) and becoming a teaching fellow (in 2013). In 2017, I went to Coventry University as a senior lecturer but kept teaching at Warwick law school as a sessional Tutor. I was appointed as a senior teaching fellow in September 2019.”
Sheharyar will be contributing to the teaching of three modules: Law of Business Organisations, Foundations of Commercial Law and Tort Law. He will also act as the Year tutor for Intermediate years. His research interests lie in the general area of corporate law, corporate governance, Islamic finance and Business law. He is enjoying being back at Warwick but particularly meeting old colleagues and former students, as well as his new students of course.
When asked why he chose to study law, he responded, “I always found the subject of law fascinating because it unveiled a number of social phenomenon which are present around us, but we may not always be aware of them. Law as an academic discipline allows one to inquire in a logical and coherent way. I have always loved the social science aspect of law.”
His advice to students would be to engage with the faculty members. “Warwick faculty members have some of the more unique perspectives about law. I would say to stimulate your intellect by learning more about the research being carried out at the law school. Meet the faculty members and ask them opinions on difficult questions outside of your curriculum.”
We are excited to see what they all bring to the study of law at Warwick. Let’s make them all feel welcome.
