Our tutors

Our Law tutors (Associate Lecturers) are established university law lecturers, solicitors and barristers but, whatever their background, they all have at least one thing in common: a commitment and interest in teaching law.

If you are interested in teaching Law at The Open University, you can find out more on the Teaching with the OU website.

You can get a flavour of the different people who tutor law students with us by viewing their testimonials below.

I take great pride and satisfaction from working with OU students who come from such diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

What I most enjoy at the OU is the commitment shown by the students. Studying remotely requires a lot of resilience and through my OU modules I have come across some of the most committed and able students in my career.
