    Abstract

    Electronic legal education involves the use of information, communication and instructional technologies to enhance students' learning of the law and to provide law teachers with environments and tools for teaching the law. With the fast growth of the Internet many Law schools and Law faculties are moving their education and training into web environments. This may open new ways of teaching and learning the law by providing students with an enviroment in which they can manage legal information and legal knowledge for their personal professional use. However it is clear that throughout Europe there are divergent as well as convergent uses of the web and IT. This article explores some of the issues inherent in this, and suggests a number of projects that would enable ICT in legal education to facilitate the aims of the Sorbonne-Bologna process.
