Legal education in a changing world: report of the Committee on legal education in the developing countries
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1975 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This is a report of an international committee of legal scholars appointed by the International Legal Center to study the progress and problems of legal education in the developing regions of the world.

The report argues that the importance of legal education, both as an educational experience and as a source of valuable practical skills for the development of a society, has been consistently underestimated in the developing countries. At the same time, the report urges that legal education has to be planned within the context of and related to the local social and developmental situation, taking into account such factors as differences in the use of formal laws and legal processes and in the perception of their value. It is necessary to approach law as a discipline which helps to understand and solve problems of development.

The report also dentifies some problems that are likely to be important concerns of legal education.
