Welcome back to Ahead of the Curve. I’m Karen Sloan, legal education editor at Law.com, and I’ll be your host for this weekly look at innovation and notable developments in legal education.

Today I’m focused on Mitchell Hamline School of Law’s new “Gateway to Legal Education” program, which aims to use online learning to reach minority undergraduates interested in law school. I’m also checking in with Florida International University College of Law and how it manages to dominate the Sunshine State’s bar exam. Finally, we’ll hear from Southern University Law Center Chancellor John Pierre on the how school is finding innovate ways to generate revenue.
