Abstract: Flexible problem-solving behaviour based upon applying complex cognitive skills is now regarded as a desirable attribute of law graduates. Acquiring these complex cognitive skills can only be accomplished through a complex learning process where knowledge, skills, and attitudes are acqured and integrated and where these are coordinated during task execution. Only then can we acquire those complex skills that aim at transfer of what is learned in law school to work settings. The challenging question for legal education is, how can we help law students acquire these complex cognitive skills? And an inferred question is: how can this be done with minimum expenditure? Short answers to those questions respectively may be to use a situated leaning paradigm, and use ICT.
