Ananya Gopal Teacher of Law

I am a teacher of law and am able to teach other subjects such as Maths, History, English Language and Literature and Geography, including Indian languages.
Commercial law is my area of expertise, primarily intellectual property law. To evidence my knowledge of the subject, I am currently close to completion of the Legal Practice Course and LLM in Commercial Legal Practice with BPP University (Holborn) and have completed my LLM in Intellectual Property at Queen Mary, University of London, and my LLB in Law (Hons) with the University of Essex. I am extremely comfortable with teaching the traditional commercial legal topics such as contract law, corporate finance, contract law, acquisition law, and intellectual property law.
Studying these subjects differs from teaching them, especially to mature students, students with families, distance learners, and part-time students. A large portion of the demographic when I tutored the postgraduate module of Intellectual Property in Business (as part of the LLM programme) comprised of students who had an entirely separate work or family life that demanded their attention. Their needs were such that they could not attend classes at a certain time and that they needed a different form of support while preparing for their assessments, one that would fit into their schedule without requiring them to alter other commitments. This is where my strength lies; I understand that at the receiving end of my lectures and tutorials sit varied individuals of different capabilities, learning patterns and necessities and they cannot always be offered a set program of rigid teaching. Where one rule can be followed by all, I implement said rule but when I have to anticipate problems for my students and adjust my teaching patterns or lecture delivery according to their needs, I do so.
I am committed to diversity, cognisant of change, ready to adapt and most importantly willing to learn. As I have planned simultaneous careers in legal practice, pro bono work and academic teaching,any teaching experience would provide a solid foundation in the trajectory of my metier and I am determined to make it a success if selected for this role.
