    Abstract

    Information and communications technology in professional legal education courses is perceived as problematic for teachers and course designers. It is so not because technology is inherently difficult or strange, but because at a deep level it threatens our practice and our identity as teachers. However the contextual challenges of our position, caught between academy and practice, may actually help us to take account of new technologies. The paper discusses this proposal, using the examples of two different types of discussion forums, and suggests that one way forward for us is to create our own community of practice in the use of ICT in professional legal learning.
