The Open University Law School was established in 1998, and since then more than 60,000 students have studied law with us. Currently, 9,000 students in 45 countries are taking our courses, and we continue to lead the sector in part-time distance learning.
At postgraduate level, we offer a Master of Laws (LLM) and modules that contribute to the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and the Postgraduate Certificate in Human Rights and Development Management.
Our Law School is based in Milton Keynes, UK. We have more than 20 central academic staff, led by Paul Catley, and there is an active student Law Society which all students are encouraged to join.
To make outstanding legal education accessible to all who pursue it.
We will encourage critical engagement with the law and reveal the transformative effects of an outstanding legal education on society and individuals. This will be achieved through our creative and varied curriculum which is informed by our diverse research interests. We will foster personal development, irrespective of goals, prior achievement or personal circumstances.
