The Bingham Centre has been a leading provider of public legal education to school students aged 11-18 since 2014. Alongside this work, the Centre has run short courses on the Rule of Law for legal practitioners and government officials. Our methods of public legal education are limited to those that we can physically interact with or those to whom we can deliver lesson plans. We will expand our reach next year by creating a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) to allow more people across the world to benefit from our expertise.
'Citizenship and the Rule of Law: Advancing Democracy and Human Rights' is a free-to-trial MOOC run in conjunction with the University of London and Coursera. The six-week course comprises the following elements:
- An introduction to the Rule of Law
- Judicial independence
- Access to justice
- International law and remedies
- Business, human rights and the Rule of Law
We anticipate a launch date of 13th January 2020.
