Hard to assess the merits from this piece, it may be substantive and meritorious, or just trendy (as, alas, many curricular overhauls tend to be). Perhaps it will be in the spirit of the second change to legal education discussed here.
(I was amused by the reference in the linked article to a course on "Nietzsche and the Law." While Cardozo once ran a conference on this topic [I did not attend], I've actually never heard of such a course. Cardozo used to offer a course on Hegel's Science of Logic, however! Maybe they still do.)
