Socrates and Confuncius: a long history of information technology in legal education

Paliwala, Abdul (

  Lefis Series Vol 9,num (2010),pp.225-254

Abstract: This chapter examines the history of technology in legal education and considers the ways in which the sages Socrates, Confucius and the medieval inventors of the lecture have been the iconic stimulators of methodologies of eLearning. It argues that earlier ventures into information technology in legal education were influenced either by the Langdellian/Socratic ‘case method’ or the ‘lecture method’. Subsequent more innovative forms of eLearning have been inspired by the student centred and holistic Realist, Deweyan methodologies which have similarities with Confucian methodologies.
