Abstract:     
This article discusses the development of an e-learning tool (the E-CAT) for teaching case analysis skills. The paper canvasses a range of issues that impact development of e-learning strategies in higher education and more specifically within the law curriculum. Of primary consideration are the pedagogical issues raised by the use of e-learning strategies and the need to balance clear educational objectives against the cost, time and technological limitations in developing and adopting e-learning tools and e-based teaching strategies. The paper argues that e-learning tools should be carefully crafted to promote active, critically engaged and reflective experiences for students that are consistent with the aspirations of higher education. The paper establishes the E-CAT as a pedagogically driven e-learning tool, which encourages deep and autonomous student learning and offers a model that can be adapted to teach a range of legal skills to students with diverse learning needs.
