Distance Learning in Legal Education: Design, Delivery and Recommended Practices


This paper was written as a collaborative project by the Working Group on Distance Education in Legal Education. Contributors included law faculty, administrators, instructional designers, and law school librarians.

The materials are intended to provide law schools and interested parties with a summary of distance learning opportunities, tools, and considerations. The paper presents three fundamental questions and attempts to provide a discussion of each.

1. How should a law school implement distance education?

2. What are the technical questions to be addressed in designing a distance education program and what training should be provided to students, staff, and faculty. 

3. What are the institutional and accreditation concerns.
