Law School Admission Council

In 1948, three years after the first suggestion of a “law capacity test” to use in law school admission decisions, the first LSAT was administered — giving birth to the idea that became the Law School Admission Council. Three-quarters of a century later, LSAC continues to embody the very reason the LSAT was created: the desire to level the playing field and give people from all backgrounds and walks of life a chance to add their diverse voices to the world of law. We invited key figures from LSAC’s past and present to share their thoughts about our continuing role in making a legal education achievable for all.

LSAC is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance law and justice by encouraging diverse, talented individuals to study law and by supporting their enrollment and learning journeys from prelaw through practice. LSAC provides products and services that support candidates and schools throughout the law school admission process, and innovative solutions to expand and diversify the range of prelaw students, enhance student outcomes in law school, and support legal professionals throughout their careers.
