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 into what I learned while listening to a panel about becoming a law dean at the Association of American Law School’s annual meeting. Turns out there is a lot more to securing a dean gig than I imagined, and the process begins much earlier than you might think. Next up is a look at the diverse crop of new deans who have been named since the beginning of 2020. And will an unusual bankruptcy decision out of New York make it easier for law grads to ditch their student loan debt?
