Study Of The Impact Of Information Communication Technology (ICT) On Legal education
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
This study on The Impact Of Information Communication Technology (ICT) On Legal Education examines the field of information and communications technology and its relationship to the education system. Information and communication technology has been interwoven into the area of legal education to a certain degree, as it has been in practically every sector that now functions on a global scale. Students and instructors from inside the Legal Education system will participate in the study. It will take the form of a survey to evaluate and analyze opinions on the impact of information and communications technology on a certain field of study.
Information and communication technology is often known by the acronym ICT. It places a significant emphasis on the function of unified communications and the essential integration of computer and telecommunications systems, as well as the enterprise software, middleware storage, and audiovisual devices required to provide the stated service's users with the ability to access, transmit, store, and manipulate data. These processes are performed with the aid of computers. The concepts included by the umbrella term information and communications technology (ICT) are constantly evolving, and new software applications and services are developed often.
Simply described, it is the merging of audiovisual, telephone, and computer networks via a single cable or connecting system.
The consolidation of telephone networks and computer networks into a single cabling system has its own economic advantages, which may be acquired by adopting the following steps:
Using a single standardized and unified cabling system, manage networks in a unified manner for the distribution of unified signals.
These will be itemized in great detail and explored in depth; there are an ever-changing number of advantages and disadvantages of ICT on each educational area. These will be investigated in detail.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The world of information and communication technology has grown dramatically over the last several decades and has, shall we say, permeated almost every sector of the economy, including education, manufacturing, banking, business, and other sectors. It is now necessary to do study and analysis on the potential advantages and disadvantages of making the change in the legal industry.
1.3 motivation OF THE STUDY
This study was motivated by the rising trend in the world of technology, notably with information and communications technology (ICT), and the breakthroughs that have emerged in several economic sectors. We live in a global economy oriented on the supply of services, and the provision of educational services is no different.
In Nigeria, law education is usually recognized as one of the most elite educational subfields. As with other subfields, we may learn from the utility of information and communications technology (ICT), explore both its good and bad features, and devise measures to mitigate any unexpected effects.
1.4 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
Among the aims and objectives of this research are the following:
Investigation and research into information and communication technology
A Comparison of Traditional and Modern Methods of Education and Instruction in Nigerian Law Schools and Law Faculties
Obtaining the general public's perspective on the implications of information and communication technologies (ICT) on the educational sector, namely the legal field.
Identifying the areas where the Legal Education sector has fallen short in terms of integrating information and communication technology and capitalizing on the many potential it offers.
1.5 OUTLINE OF methodology
This study used a descriptive survey approach to assess the views of students, instructors, and academics at chosen institutions on the good or negative effects of ICT on Legal Education and the legal profession in general. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of ICT on Legal Education and the legal profession as a whole. In order to get a decent response rate from the participants, this study methodology was used. Thus, the researcher will be able to gather sufficient data, which can afterwards be processed and assessed quantitatively. The approach will include assessing the relationships between the variables of interest in order to determine the degree of connection between them.
1.6 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This study's objective was to examine the impact of developments in information and communication technologies on legal education. 60 students and 60 instructors from a range of higher education institutions offered comments for the research, for a total of 120 participants.
1.7 SIGINIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This study is significant because it analyzes the benefits and drawbacks of incorporating ICT into the educational sector, as well as potential solutions.
1.8 organisation OF THE PROJECT
The structure of the project is such that: The first chapter explores and explains, at a suitable length for the issue at hand, the historical backdrop of the independent factors considered in the process of conducting the ICT-integrated Legal Education research. In the second chapter, we examine Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and their link to related works in the area of Nigerian Legal Education in more detail. In the third chapter, we analyze the methodology used over the course of this inquiry. Specifically, a descriptive survey will function as the investigation's practical methodological approach. In Chapter Four, the study's results are presented and analyzed. In Chapter Five, a summary, results, and recommendations for future work are presented to conclude the study.
