English term or phrase:legal information engineering
One common solution to "hyper-regulation" yet inadequate promulgation of law, and an increasingly "pressurised legal marketplace", is to use present and foreseeable developments in IT to move from "reactive lawyering" to pro-active "legal information engineering". Such transformations in legal practice will require major reorientations in legal education.
Explanation: I am not 100% sure, but Informationssysteme und Information Engineering do not seem to be the same thing. I found on the web that Information Engineering is common Denglish. How the <Legal> fits in, I do not know.
Just another suggestion...
Finkelstein [definiert]: Information Engineering is an integrated set of techniques, based on corporate strategic planning, which results in the analysis, design and development of systems which support those plans exactly. Information Engineering is applied by managers and users with no knowledge of computers, but instead with an expert knowledge of their business - in conjunction with expert systems which provide rapid feedback to management for refinement of the strategic plans.
