My suggestions here will be directed to the second and third years of the law curriculum. In suggesting courses which I believe can provide a valuable body of knowledge in preparation for the new demands of urban law practice, I have ignored the opportunities for drawing on materials relevant to that practice in many of the courses that I do not mention. Without sacrificing instructional value, such materials can frequently be substituted in first-year courses and in some of the second and third year courses for materials drawn from a more bucolic America. This process is already beginning to take place, and I feel confident it will continue. This pouring of new wine into old bottles has the special advantage of not requiring a revision of the curriculum-or should I say the wine card?
