Welcome back to Ahead of the Curve. I’m Christine Charnosky, legal education reporter for Law.com, and I’ll be your host for this week’s look at innovation and notable developments in legal education.

This week’s column further examines the topic of diversity, equity and inclusion in legal academia as we review our coverage of the Island Leadership Lab the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law, plus look at some other law school and law firm programs that aim to debunk the myth that diverse young talent is scarce.
