Providing free legal advice and guidance
Open Justice at The Open University Law School provides free legal advice and guidance to people and groups who may struggle to access appropriate legal support through other means.
Whether you are seeking legal advice, interested in our law students providing a session for a local group, or a potential W360 student, we hope you find the Open Justice pages interesting and inspiring.
The Co-directors of Open Justice, Francine Ryan and Hugh McFaul, have made these videos to explain the work that Open Justice is doing, in response to, and as business as usual, during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Our online clinic is run by Open University law students and supervised by qualified solicitors. It provides free legal advice on contract, tort, employment law and consumer issues. To get advice, you can complete our online enquiry form.
Open University law students, under the supervision of Law School academics, provide both face-to-face and online sessions with schools, prisons and community groups on specific legal topics to help people understand their rights.
Open University law students can choose to take our Justice in Action (W360) module which involves undertaking a variety of Open Justice activities, as well as studying key underlying themes relating to social justice, professional identity and ethics and values.
