Abstract

Legal education in the realities of the development of modern information and digital technologies has rediscovered its potential. At the same time, the risks that lead to negative manifestations in the legal environment in general and in its educational and legal clusters, in particular, have become more relevant. A key aspect that requires special attention is human rights. Consequently, the purpose of scientific exploration is to illuminate the interaction of theoretical-methodological (classical legal field) and practical-oriented (information-digital legal format) clusters in the context of the human dimensionality of legal education. The task of the article is to develop an effective educational-legal format using the positive elements of information and communication technologies. Such a model creates the proper prerequisites for the legal environment necessary for the comprehensive assurance of human rights. The synergetic model is seen as the most acceptable methodology capable of creating an effective and relevant format of legal education in the information age. Therefore, soft-skills and digital skills for legal education applicants should be unified with educational-legal hard-skills into a single strategy of legal relations in the socio-cultural space and focus primary attention on the observance of human rights.
