During this Breakfast Briefing on 16 January 2018, Hugh McFaul, Lecturer in Law at The Open University Law School, showcased Open Justice's use of digital innovation in teaching and research to support the development of student employability skills and to promote access to justice.

Hugh showcased Open Justice's use of digital innovation in teaching and research to support the development of student employability skills and to promote access to justice. He provided insights to how the law school has used digital innovation to best support developing skills for our students to succeed in the modern world – innovation which could help shape your employees’ skills.
