Abstract

The landscape of education in Jordan is changing. Teaching began using chalkboards and soon graduated to transparencies and overhead projectors. Then PowerPoint took root in colleges with slides projected from a computer onto a classroom screen. For some in Jordan, imagining offering online law courses is difficult. But other Jordanian graduate and undergraduate institutions have been offering online education for several years. Those years of experience in online education in the non-law college context puts colleges of law at a significant disadvantage.The article addresses legal education in Jordan and the challenges colleges of law face by introducing online courses. I argue that Jordanian colleges of law must adopt an online model for some courses to meet the expectations of students. There is no 'if' about online law courses, only a 'when'. Colleges of law in Jordan should be re-tooling to be relevant in the Age of Information.
