The Open Justice Law Clinic is a free online legal advice clinic run by The Open University Law School. The clinic is led by law students under the supervision of qualified solicitors.

Need free legal advice?

If you have a legal issue and need some initial advice, you can request an appointment for one of our free online advice sessions. Our online law clinic is staffed by law students and solicitors and our free online advice sessions are designed to provide you with the information to help resolve your issue.

We provide advice on the following types of legal issues:

  • Contractual disputes
  • Clinical negligence
  • Civil litigation
  • Building claims
  • Consumer rights
  • Small claims

The Open Justice Law Clinic cannot advise on criminal, employment, debt, immigration or family law issues. We are unable to pursue a claim against The Open University, its Governors, employees or students. We may decide not to take a case forward if it falls outside the clinic’s expertise, if there is a conflict of interest or if urgent assistance is required.

How to contact us

Please complete the online form.

We will then contact you to arrange an online interview or, if we can’t take your case, to refer you to a firm or organisation that is more able to assist you.
