PEREZ PERDOMO, Rogelio. From Harvard to Stanford. On the history of the legal education of United States. Bol. Mex. Der. Comp. [online]. 2018, vol.51, n.151, pp.313-358. ISSN 2448-4873.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/iij.24484873e.2018.151.12296.

In the English tradition, the legal profession was in charge of legal education. This way of educating lawyers was not well adapted to North American society. There, law schools began educating lawyers in late eighteenth century, initially in the hands of proprietary lawyers and later as part of universities. Harvard University invented the present day style of American legal education in the 1870s and Harvard Law School dominated the panorama of legal education until the 1980s. Stanford University started in late nineteenth century and has become a leading institution due to its innovation and excellence. The article offers a short history of legal education in United States centered in these two institutions.

Palabras llave : History of legal education in U.S; Harvard Law School; Stanford Law School.
