Abstract

The present work shows the changes that have been happening in the learning process, where the relation professor/student stops being hierarchized   vertically as it used to be in the past, where the professor spoke ex cathedra; focusing on the aptitudes that the students should be capable of acquiring, so that the professor becomes a guide in charge of conducting the student through the appropriate ways amid the big entanglement of asystematic information supplied by the so-called Information Society. Thus, the appropriate use of the new technologies has capital importance in the learning process. It is in this context that PUCPR developed the system called EUREKA, which has been improved each day, with the intention of providing its professors and students, among which the law course is included, an instrument capable to decisively contribute to the attainment of that new teaching paradigm. In order to achieve that, the mere adhesion of the learning process participants to the system is not enough, as this phase has already been achieved by PUCPR; above all it is important to have an appropriate and efficient use, what demands training and continuous formation of professors, being that the current challenge of the institution, especially in the case of the Law School, where the professors have predominantly been using the traditional methods of teaching, underutilizing the technological instruments that are already available.
