The Open University Law School is the largest provider of undergraduate law degrees within the United Kingdom.
Recent years have witnessed unprecedented growth within The Open University Law School – since 2012 we have more than doubled our central academic staff numbers.
Research is at the heart of our activities, underpinning all our teaching. It is also the case that our staff are increasingly in demand to talk about their research across the globe. In the last year Law School staff have given invited research papers around the world including in Australia, the United States and Mexico as well as across Europe and the United Kingdom.
We welcome PhD and MPhil proposals not just in those areas of specialism listed, but in all areas of law and legal education.
We hold regular research talks to which all staff and research students are invited.
