Public legal education

Two people meeting

Open Justice is working to provide opportunities for OU law students and academics to engage with their communities through providing public legal education opportunities online, in schools, in prisons and in courts.

So far our students have delivered Streetlaw sessions to High School pupils on human rights, social media law, legal careers and are working with the Personal Support Unit to assist litigants in person in the civil courts and with Refugee Action to assist in the provision of immigration and asylum advice. Forthcoming projects include working with the St Giles trust to develop legal education opportunities for prisoners and ex-offenders.

If your organisation would be interested in working with Open Justice to provide public legal education opportunities on legal topics of importance to your community, please contact us.

For further information, or if you have a question which is not covered online, please get in touch with us.
