In the first of an initial series of three videos, Professor Conor Gearty|, professor of law and head of human rights at LSE, talks of his passion for teaching -- and what makes teaching at LSE so special. 'One of the remarkable features of a successful institution such as LSE's Department of Law is that... most of the colleagues are teaching stuff of which they are a part and that makes for good teaching at university level,' he argues, as the video follows him from lecture theatre to Matrix Chambers, where he is a founding member and practising barrister.

Raised in Ireland, his family was 'extremely involved in both sides of the fight for Irish freedom', and he developed an early interest in human rights and the power of teaching. 'The main thing that makes a teacher a good teacher across any level of education is interest in the person being taught -- whether it's a four year old, a fourteen year old or a 24 year old,' he says.
