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 chatting with former Creighton law professors Nicholas Mirkay and Palma Joy Strand about their new article recounting the struggles they faced as campus reformers, and why the legal academy is so resistant to change. Next up is a look at how University of Chicago law professor Martha Nussbaum is using a $1 million prize to foster cross-political discourse at the school. Finally, Georgetown University Law Center has hired a computer scientist without a J.D. for a tenure-track position—a first for a U.S. law school—and the new professor is an expert code cracker to boot.
