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 noting the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s unique place in the legal academy. Then I’ve got the rundown on a long-awaited book about the first women law professors by the late UC Berkeley law professor Herma Hill Kay, who died in 2017. The project, which had been championed by Kay’s longtime friend Ginsburg, is being finished by Santa Clara law professor Patricia Cain, who last week gave a preview on the book. Next up, the faculty at Texas A&M University School of Law is keeping it fresh with their rendition of the School House Rock song Preamble about…wait for it…the Constitution. Who says you can’t have some fun in law school?
