Methods of Legal Education, 1 Yale Law Journal 139 (1892)


My opinion is asked in respect to the methods of legal instruction. I am not an authority upon that subject. My connection with it has been too limited and too brief to entitle any conclusions of mine to be placed in comparison with those of gentlemen who by long and honourable service have attained a distinguished reputation in that important field. Such views as I have, are not derived from consideration of systems of study, but from observation of their results. I have paid little attention to the processes of culture, but have had large opportunities to observe the harvest, for my acquaintance with the profession in all its grades has been long and wide.
