In Japan legal education at the university has not provided professional legal education. The majority of students of law pursued their career in business or public sector and those who practice law were in a minority. But Introduction of the Law School system radically changed the scene. The part of professional legal education became the responsibility of the law school and teachers of the law school do not always have experience of professional training of future lawyers.
We have developed a new environment for professional legal education by utilizing computer networks and diverse computer tools. The environment consists of three main parts. The first is APRS (Anonymous Peer Review System), which enables students to assess anonymous reports of other students. The assessment is done anonymously via network. The second is DRS((Digital Recording Studio) and STICS (Stream Indexing and Commenting System which record and index students' performances. Comments from professionals and other students can be added to the video record so that students can receive feedbacks. The third is NLS (Nagoya Law School) syllabus system, by which students can view syllabuses via internet. And it accumulates the records of all courses, including handouts, and works as a platform of the other two parts.
Our research and development are not limited to a development of pragmatic tools. Our system can be useful for the accumulation and analysis of educational data. It will form a basis of the future theory of professional legal education.
