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.

I’m just back from three days at the Association of American Law School’s annual meeting in Washington, still mulling the many interesting discussions and panels I saw. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about those, but for today I’m highlighting a few key events and topics that arose in D.C. First is the visit by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the reception she received, which was more enthusiastic than any I’ve seen in nearly a decade of attending this meeting. Next I’m wading through the many panels and discussions centered on law school rankings, and more specifically, the introduction of U.S. News & World Report’s scholarly impact ranking.
