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.

Eight months ago, law schools across the country pledged to step up their efforts to combat racism and better embrace diversity and inclusion on their campuses. Today, I’m highlighting a few new initiatives that were born out of renewed focus on systemic injustice and inequality. I’m checking in on what’s happening at the University of Southern California Gould School of LawFordham University School of Law; and Boston University School of Law. I’m hoping to see many more unveiled in the coming months. Read on and stay safe!
