3 May Open Justice: live interactive event

The Open University Law School presents a live interactive event on 3rd May from 1.30pm – 3pm, and 7pm – 9pm (BST). We hope you can join us!

This event will be of interest to people studying, or intending to study, law at The Open University and also for those who have an interest in accessing legal support.

We will be showing you around the website and demonstrating how students would give pro bono advice, and we will fill you in on how The Open University have delivered public legal education to schools in areas such as human rights and social media law. There is also a session about how to meet the need for public legal education in prisons.

You can see the full programme and find out more about each session on the website
The event is online, interactive and open to everyone. The chat room will be open from 1pm and during the live event from 1.30pm you can send your tweets to @StudentHubLive (#StudentHubLive17), email us at, complete the online voting tools, send us your comments and take part in the online discussions.
