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 serving the up the highlights from a panel discussion about how diverse law deans are changing legal education, and how legal employers can support their efforts to produce more attorneys from underrepresented groups. Next, the Law School Admission Council has unveiled a new initiative to bolster diversity and inclusion among admissions officers who work directly with applicants and students.
