I have been asked to systematize, in a policy-oriented framework, the problems which face the Law School Admission Council.

A policy-oriented approach requires a number of specific steps. The first is the establishment of your observational standpoint: who you are, and what you are trying to do. The second is a very careful delimitation of your problem in factual or social process terms. The third is the explicit postulation of, and commitment to, a fundamental set of values. The fourth is the very deliberate and explicit performance of a wide range of interrelated intellectual tasks, including the detailed clarification of policies.
