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 taking a closer look at Harvard Law School’s decision to remain remote for the fall semester and its implications for legal education. Next up, I chat with Association of American Law Schools Executive Director Judith Areen about the cancelation of October’s Faculty Recruitment Conference and how law school hiring will play out this year. Plus, I’ve got some updates on legal employment and applications trends. Read on and stay safe!
