dc.description.abstract This paper is concerned with the development of the case method system of teaching which has remained at the core of American legal education until the present time. Whilst Christopher Columbus Langdell has been credited with originating the case method form of teaching law, there is evidence that it had been adopted as a form of instruction prior to Langdells appointment to the Harvard Law School in 1870. Martin Lloyd Levine states that the case method had been developed by Clerke, who ran his own law school, and by Pomeroy at New York University and at Hastings .1 en_US
