Препоръка No. R (92) 15 относно преподаването, проучванията и обучението в областта на правото и информационните технологии
(adopted by the Committee of Ministers on 19 October 1992 at the 482nd meeting of the Ministers' Deputies)

The Committee of Ministers, under the terms of Article 15.b of the Statute of the Council of Europe,

Considering that the aim of the Council of Europe is to achieve greater unity among its members;
Considering the increasing number of ways in which information technology affects society, and the need for the law to adopt new strategies and perspectives to meet the legal implications thereof;
Considering that the development of information technology provides a new working environment for the lawyer, and contributes towards changes in business practices and public administration, including a more efficient administration of justice;
Considering that legal education should acquaint lawyers with these rapidly changing legal issues and working environments,

Recommends the governments of member states to:

1. encourage and support the introduction and further development at university level of teaching and training programmes based on the elements and standards annexed to the present recommendation;

2. encourage and support research in the field of law and information technology;

3. draw the attention of the competent authorities to the importance of creating one or more national academic resource centres specialising in matters of law and information technology;

4. recognise that information technology furthers an interest in laborative elements to legal teaching and training and that, in consequence, new demands for physical and human resources have to be met;

5. invite the appropriate bodies, and particularly those responsible for permanent education, to organise training courses for legal professionals and to recognise any professional qualifications thus obtained;

6. encourage the competent authorities, where appropriate, to take into account periods of study carried out abroad in this field as part of the study required for the granting of degrees and diplomas and to promote international exchanges of students.
