Langdell Scholar Program

Since its inception in 1989, the Langdell Scholar Program has played an instrumental part in our efforts to assist law students in their academic endeavors.  The Langdell Scholar Program provides guidance in mastering the framework of legal analysis, as well as with effective outlining and exam taking techniques, in the context of current course work.  The Langdell Scholar Program is a skill-building program and not a tutoring program.

The program meetings are held on Fridays and Saturdays.  There are bi-weekly meetings lasting 1-1/2 hours per session.  The meetings are led by Langdell Scholars who are upper-class law students initially nominated by a faculty member and subsequently selected by a committee for their academic achievements, class preparation, study skills, and ability to effectively communicate.

Langdell Scholars classes are designed around the following substantive law courses:

  • Civil Procedure
  • Contracts I and II
  • Criminal Law
  • Torts I and II
  • Constitutional Law
  • Property I and II
  • Evidence
  • Federal Income Tax

Please refer to the Langdell Scholar Program Class Schedule on Stanley under the Students Affairs tab for meeting dates and times.
