Harvard Law School announced recently that it is converting its traditional letter-grade system to a variation of the pass/fail system. That change will bring Harvard in line with Yale Law School's longtime grading system, which divides grades into honors, pass, low pass and fail. Stanford Law School decided to drop letter grades in May. The changes are intended, in part, to discourage students from focusing so much on specific grades, and to focus instead on learning.
