Welcome back to Ahead of the Curve. I’m Zack Needles, editor-in-chief of Law.com, and I’ll be your host for this week’s look at innovation and notable developments in legal education.

This week, we look at how (remote learning aside) law schools were transformed for the better by the pandemic. We also hear from a Harvard Law fellow who makes the case for continued remote instruction and a high-profile intellectual property litigator whose own unusual path to Big Law has inspired her to reach out to the next generation of the profession.
