UCT [email protected] is pleased to present a five-day course on the development and management of legal information systems.
This course is designed to provide practical and actionable knowledge on current and future ways of managing legal information. This course will cover the requirements related to legal information and its management; identifying factors of relevance for the evaluation of legal IT solutions; and reviewing the legal issues that affect the use of IT in legal work and legal information management.
Effective legal information management presupposes not only good understanding of the characteristics of legal information, but also an awareness of the relevant legal frameworks, both in relation to peculiar aspects of evaluating and developing IT products and services based on legal information technology.
