Since its start in 1817, Harvard Law has been one of the oldest law institutions in the country. In 1827, when the institute was facing hardship, Nathan Dane presented it with a huge endowment and the institute was named after him. It was 1870 that a new curriculum was introduced by Langdell, famous for introducing his 'case study' method which was later promoted for every law school by Association of American Law Schools as a requirement for accreditation.

          • 1989-1990, Master of Laws (LL.M.)

            Through my time at the law school I met incredibly smart innovative and caring people like our current President as well as got to work with amazing faculty like Professor Laurence Tribe. Even though I graduated over 23 years ago I am still close to my law school friends. The other plus is Massachusetts is a great state to live in.
