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.

This week, I’m catching up with University of Miami law professor Michele DeStefano to discuss her new book “Legal Upheaval,” and what skills today’s law students need in order to thrive in tomorrow’s legal profession. I’m also checking in on a conference on racism that the University of Virginia School of Law is holding to mark the anniversary of the notorious “Unite the Right” rally.
