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’s newsletter is all about the coronavirus and how law schools are responding. But instead of zeroing on the myriad ways the pandemic is disrupting legal education, I’m highlighting some bright spots of how law professors and students are reacting to the upheaval. There’s now a Facebook writing group with more than 200 legal academics sharing their writing and supporting each other. The University of Michigan Law School community is banding together to support campus workers who have lost their jobs. And Hogan Lovells is reassuring law students that it won’t hold pass/fail grades against them. Read on and stay safe out there! Please share your thoughts and feedback with me at [email protected] or on Twitter: @KarenSloanNLJ
