problem solving at Hahvahd

According to a Boston Globe article on Sunday, May 7, 2006, Harvard Law School is exploring using  more problem-solving methods in the curriculum.  The impetus?   A recognition that the traditional Langdellian method fails to equip students with the problem-solving skills necessary in law practice.  It used to be that Harvard Law School's teaching methods led the country's approach to training lawyers, but now they seem to be just starting to catch up to what many schools, certainly most legal writing programs, have been doing for a couple of decades.
