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 examining how the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law and Vermont Law School are balancing history with the desire of students to study in inclusive campuses. In the case of New Hampshire, that tension lies in the school’s name itself, which honors a former president who failed to take a stand against slavery. At Vermont, the debate centers on a mural that was intended to honor the Underground Railroad, but which some students view as racist and offensive. Staying on the subject, I’m highlighting a new initiative among New York law schools to tackle systemic racism within their own institutions and to share notes on making meaningful changes.
