How Law Professors Can Write a Problem Solving Case by Joseph William Singer

Professor Joseph William Singer describes how law professors can write a problem solving case here.

I also like his description of the problem solving method: "The problem solving case method focuses on the case at the very beginning—before the facts are all known, before the parties’ goals are clarified, before the legal issues have been narrowed, before the dispute has crystallized or run its course. This problem solving case method asks students to consider who the client is and what their goals are or might be, what the facts are and what facts the lawyer needs to find out, what various legal rules affect the client’s ability to achieve the client’s goals, and what options might be available to help the client achieve her goals ethically and within the bounds of the law."
