This article profiles a MOOC on International Franchise Law offered by UNSW Sydney in 2016. The IFL MOOC is an example of an open access legal education course that was successfully integrated in real time into an on-campus curriculum for students majoring in business law. Opportunities, and future challenges that emerged for legal education are addressed.
