booksThinking Differently: The Case Study Method and Its Relevance to Harvard Law School

Friday, December 2, 2011, noon
Mayer Brown Room, Harvard Law School

Professor Ashish Nanda
Robert Braucher Professor of Practice
Research Director, Case Development Initiative

Beyond technical legal issues, case studies allow students to learn how to be a lawyer through real life and simulated situations. Professor Nanda will discuss the importance of the case study method in legal education for students and professionals, and will present the current and future uses of case studies here at Harvard Law School.

The Case Development and Distribution Initiative uses interviews, data, and research to develop written and video summaries of strategic and organizational issues that law and other professional service firms face. Cases are intended for use in a variety of settings including law schools, business schools, executive education, and in-house programs. This initiative is partially funded by a generous grant from Dechert LLP. Please visit the Case Development Website for more information and to learn about available cases.
