Open Justice Centre
The vision and strategy of the Open Justice Centre is to empower law students to deliver the social justice mission of the University by inculcating a commitment to public service.
The Centre develops innovative pedagogy that provides students with the opportunity to enhance their skills and experiences to support them in the changing employment market. This is underpinned by pioneering cutting edge research that informs the curriculum and showcases technology enhanced experiential learning.
As well as co-ordinating a wide range of practical activities, the Open Justice Centre is also engaged in academic research on the topics of clinical legal education, access to justice and pro bono (“for the public good”) work. Members are currently working on an empirical project exploring motivations for pro bono work amongst solicitors within England and Wales. They are also writing on the opportunities and challenges created by providing legal advice and guidance in an online setting.
