As Harvard Law Dean, Kagan Did Not Require Study of U.S. Constitutional Law; Required Internat'l, Foreign Law

By Pete Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama's choice to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court, is best known for moving Harvard Law School away from the 100-year old "case-law method" of legal study.

But in the process, critics say, she moved the nation's premier law school away from requiring the study of U.S. constitutional law towards the study of the laws of foreign nations and international law.
