For more than two decades now, the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) has been playing a pivotal role in widening access to quality education especially to sectors that are not normally reached by the conventional educational system. The UPOU is the pioneer and leading institution in open and distance learning (ODL) in the Philippines and the 5th Constituent Unit (CU) of the University of the Philippines (UP) System.

The Office of the Legal Aid (OLA) is an institutional unit in charge of the clinical legal education program of the University of the Philippines College of Law. Aside from providing law students with exposure to actual law practice, OLA inculcates in the minds of law students the concepts of public service and social justice by providing free legal services to those who cannot afford it. Many Filipinos find themselves involved in legal disputes requiring legal representation or simply need advice on legal issues but do not have sufficient resources to engage the services of private lawyers. OLA aims to bridge this gap by providing the legal service they need, while also giving its interns learning experience by handling actual cases.
