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 checking in on the four inspiring law students who landed $90,000 scholarships through the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans. Each were born abroad or to parents of immigrants, and all four have impressive resumes that make me optimistic about the next generation of attorneys. Next, I’ve got the skinny on the University of California, Irvine School of Law’s new requirement that students complete a course on race and structural inequality, which looks to be a budding trend in legal education.
