Because I am still relatively new to League of Legends I don't know all the champions names and their abilities only by their portrait. Because I mostly play normal matches where champions are picked blindly I have no chance to click on the enemy portraits and gain that information before the game starts.
Is there any way to display this information (name, type, abilities) while being already in a match? Or do I have to look it up on some website, given that I can identify the champions name by its portrait?

There is a way to see the skills of enemies altough not all i think (It's been a while since i checked it). If you die and you click on death information (seeing wich enemy killed you and such) You will see what skills did damage to you and some information, also it will show you some tips about the enemy.

Types will not be shown.

Update: So If you die you have the death recap, you can click on enemy champions and see some tips. The same as the champion screens i think. And then you can hover over some of the skills that did damage to you and get some info about them. But thats all tho.

So you say, other than letting me kill by them, there's no chance to get information about their skills? Too sad :/ –  F.S. Oct 13 '11 at 20:37
@F.S. Yep thats about it, but if you want to know more about the champions i suggest you check out the champion spotlights. There are alot of them at the moment altough not all are new, but mostly the skills stay the same. –  Lyrion Oct 14 '11 at 6:21

In game, the only way is for the enemy champion to get a kill/assist on you. Then, you can review the damage and see what their abilities do.

If you have a smartphone, I'd recommend checking out some of the LoL apps. They neatly solve this problem without pulling too much attention away from the game.

2nd monitor + wikia > smartphone :) Still both useless until I know at least the name of the champion –  F.S. Oct 13 '11 at 20:38
The champion name is listed on the loading screen, and if you press tab during play. –  Toast Oct 13 '11 at 21:29
