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 checking in on the diploma privilege movement and zeroing on why is hasn’t gained more traction with state attorney licensing bodies. The fight isn’t over yet, but for now it appears that courts are more comfortable with the idea of an online bar exam than eschewing the test altogether. Next, I’m chatting with Penn State professor Tom Sharbaugh about his idea that law faculty set aside their scholarship during the fall semester and concentrate fully on their teaching as a way to mitigate some of the challenges posed to students by COVID-19 and remote learning.
