Harvard announced a broad set of changes to its first year legal curriculum. It will be interesting to see if and how other schools follow suit.

From the NY Times article, Harvard Law Decides to Steep Students in 21st-Century Issues -

Students will still have to learn some of the classics, like contracts, torts and criminal law, but will spend less time on them. They will be required to take in addition a course in legislation and regulation; one of three new courses dealing with international law; and a course on legal problem solving, in which they will prepare for resolving clients’ dilemmas rather than analyze abstract legal issues.
