I think that the classes and discussions will probably be more interesting in B, but I'd rather miss out on the "extras" than miss minute but important details of the law because my class glossed over it to get to the philosophy and politics of the case.
My concern had more to do with studying for exams. While the traditional courses have supplements, guides, and advice that are applicable to most law school curricula, I personally don't feel too comfortable with winging it and figuring out what to do and how to handle exams any more than I already have to for Curriculum A.

That's probably very true. The learning style of Curriculum B sounds much more attractive to me than A, because I always love a good political or philosophical discussion. I just feel more comfortable being held to the traditional standards of the study of law than to face uncertainty.
