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 chatting with Penn State Dickinson Law Dean Danielle Conway about the various ways her school is incorporating antiracist teaching into its curriculum. That includes the introduction last fall of a required first-year class on racism and the law, as well as the recruitment of significantly more students and faculty of color. Next up is an update on Vermont Law School’s artwork controversy, in which the school went to court to cover up a 1990s mural that many say is racially offensive.
