Law Society of South Africa's LEAD blended learning programme

LEAD, the legal education division of the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA), is in the process of redesigning its vocational training programme in order to harness distance education and blended learning methods to supplement, and in some instances replace, contact training. LEAD invited NBA to support and guide the organization in making better use of technology for legal teaching, learning and training. NBA provided a series of face-to-face workshops to guide LEAD content developers in the process of creating content suitable for an online environment, and also supported LEAD in developing and writing policy documentation for the implementation of blended learning within the organization.
