The landmark work that introduced the revolutionary idea of the "case system" to legal education, which Langdell instituted in his position as Dean at Harvard Law School. A response to the European educational practice of the expository textbook as the basis of study, Langdell invented herein the use of original authorities to teach legal principles in his classes at Harvard...No library had, nor could afford, the number of duplicate volumes of the court reports that were required to that all students could have easy and equal access to the cases. Langdell's solution was the casebook. Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
