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’ve got lots of news about law deans—those hard-working folks who are keeping their campuses moving forward despite the myriad challenges 2020 is throwing at them. First, six law deans from across the country are teaming up to launch an online discussion series for prospective law students. I caught up with their ringleader, USC law dean Andrew Guzman, to find out more about the series and what its goal is. Next up is a look at a new Law.com series that breaks down the days of legal professionals who are now working remote, and first up is University of California, Irvine School of Law Dean Song Richardson. Finally, I’m checking in with deans at Penn State Dickinson and Pepperdine who are opening their wallets to help students. Read on and stay safe!
