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.

I enjoy the diverse nature of students we see at the OU and their willingness to engage and be funny even when it’s 7.30pm on a rainy January evening.
