Abstract

Online courses, webinars and other digital media open up a wide range of convenient, cost-effective training options for law professionals. Myriad combinations of technology, platforms, content and classrooms are nowadays possible. In particular, the e-learning approach can be considered as a tailored-made mean that aims to meet the needs of a specific target group, at the same time, reach the majority of stakeholders, and ensure the continuity of the acquired abilities and skills. The positive result of this approach depends largely on the way the content is presented. Thus, the visual design of materials and the way the content is structured and displayed are important elements when designing the e-learning modules. The article tries to point out how visual techniques interact with e-learning legal programmes, specifically focusing on legal practitioners (judges, prosecutors and lawyers).
