Abstract

In 1871, Christopher Columbus Langdell, Dean of the Harvard Law School, published what is held to be the first casebook in the common law world—A Selection of Cases on the Law of Contracts (1871). It should come as no surprise that, more than a century later, books that combine legal materials with analysis and commentary are still an invaluable part of legal education. The number of relevant cases in any given area only increases with time, and therefore books that harvest, organise and analyse the sheer bulk of relevant legal material are perhaps more needed than ever.
