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 breaking down a new report on “The Whitest Law Schools,” which aims to demonstrate which law schools are bringing in diverse first-year classes, and which are falling short. The report, prepared by University of Dayton professor emerita Vernellia Randall, also sheds some light on how much diversity progress legal education as a whole has made since her initial report came out in 2004. Next up, I’m checking in on a cool new initiative from Catholic University Columbus School of Law: A two-day bootcamp for incoming judicial clerks to teach them how to draft opinions and what to expect in chambers.
