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 looking ahead to the soon-to-start fall semester and what law classes will actually look like. I’ve gathered up some takeaways from a virtual symposium organized by the University of Miami School of Law and the AALS’ Journal of Legal Education on how the move online is changing the law school experience. Plus, I’ve gleaned some insights from a thoughtful series of blog posts by the University of Richmond’s Jessica Erickson and a new paper by Syracuse University’s Nina Kohn, both of which offer guides to online law teaching. Read on and stay safe!
