Following Harvard

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I've been swamped trying to catch up with the work I ignored this weekend when I went home.

But here's an interesting NYT article: Harvard Law Decides to Steep Students in 21st-Century Issues

Basically, Harvard Law is going to change its curriculum and shrink the contracts/civ pro/etc traditional 1st year curriculum and add classes on international law, legislation, and problem solving. It is good development I think, since the law school curriculum has been pretty much unchanged for many years, and needs to change with the times. And because Harvard is the arbiter of legal education, law schools generally follow Harvard's lead.
