Legal science through information and communication technologies

Objective

Legal science is in general not considered to be a thematic area where electronic networking and advanced techniques could be effectively applied. The different legal networks already existing are producing materials in certain subject matters without any further elaboration in relation to advancement of a long-term electronic co-operation. Especially in the field of Public Law, which has unquestionably become an eminent feature of convergence in European law and has significantly contributed to the European integration, there has not been a major effort to facilitate highly technical and structural research. This imposes that researchers wishing to carry out comparative European legal work have to travel to each national system, in order to collect the necessary information. The intention of the present proposal is to foster the deliberation of this situation. This is to be made on two levels. First, exploration of the possibilities to advance the networking capabilities of the participating institutions and; second; introduction of innovative electronic techniques particularly akin to distant learning and searching. The result will be the increase in the effectiveness and quality of research in Europe in the fields of European Public Law, European Law, European Integration and Enlargement.
