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 delving further into the matter of law school naming rights and all the sticky issues that go along with them—spurred by recent drama at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. How do you determine the right donation amount to trigger a rebrand? How will students and alumni react? And what happens when donors get mad? Next up is a look at the newly published law text “The Mueller Investigation and Beyond,” which uses the special counsel investigation and report as a law school capstone, pulling together an array of legal issues and showing students how they work in the real world.
