Abstract

Christopher Columbus Langdell Used cases to teach the law well. So everyone thought, Except for distraught Students in Socratic hell.

Theirs is no lone cri de coeur. Now bashing Langdell’s de rigueur. Knowing case law alone, A young lawyer is prone To resemble a high-priced poseur.

After a part that rehearses Anti-Langdellian curses; The Author proceeds To attend to the needs Of students who learn best through verses.
