Overview

As dean of Harvard Law School from 1870 to 1895, Christopher C. Langdell (1826-1906) conceived, designed, and built the educational model that leading professional schools in virtually all fields subsequently emulated. Based on meritocracy, the system's components included the admission requirement of a bachelor's degree, the sequenced curriculum and its extension to three years, the hurdle of annual examinations for continuation and graduation, and the independent career track for professional faculty, among other requirements that proved controversial when they were first instituted. This is the first full-length biography of the man whose educational model eventually became the standard for other professional schools.
