Outline of Lecture Course What is the most difficult aspect of setting up a legal system? Legislation, funding, or the provision of facilities? Each of these stages does have its own problems, but the training of personnel probably presents the greatest hurdle. Technical, legal and moral competence is required for those who man and run the legal system. How can legal education provide such qualities in its trainees? Discussion and interviews are conducted on this question following intensive reading of literature on the subject.
