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 checking in on a cool new course at UC Berkeley Law that examines the new role of general counsel in corporate sustainability initiatives and brings GCs in to speak with students about the work they’re doing on environmental and social issues. Next, I’m revisiting the now spiked proposal to move Valparaiso Law to Middle Tennessee State University and examining what went wrong.
