LEGAL EDUCATION & ICT ICT provides students with an environment in which they can manage legal information and legal knowledge for their personal professional use.

LEGAL EDUCATION & ICT The focus should be on the implementation of development strategies centered on quality of content and processes. We should treat the design of electronic materials for learning the law as a research activity. In designing these electronic materials a principled and structured design approach should be taken.

We should treat the design of electronic materials for learning the law as a research activity.

In designing these electronic materials a principled and structured design approach should be taken.

LEGAL EDUCATION & ICT This approach involves three major types of research categories: Basic research in the modeling of legal knowledge and legal reasoning Applied research for realizing the electronic materials Integrated research where the emphasis is on managing existing electronic materials and delivering courses
