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 looking at the exodus of law deans with a decade or more of experience under their belts with commentary from outgoing Chicago-Kent law dean Harold Krent on how to last in the job. Next up is a look at the benefits of hosting the Global Legal Hackathon on law campuses—something Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School understand.
