The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a nonprofit corporation whose goal is to provide the highest quality admission-related services for legal education institutions and their applicants throughout the world. More than 200 law schools in the United States, Canada, and Australia benefit from LSAC's services, which include the Law School Admission Test (LSAT); credential assembly services encompassing letters of recommendation, electronic applications, and domestic and international transcript processing for JD and graduate law degrees; the Candidate Referral Service (CRS); admission office systems and software; research and statistical reports; websites for law schools, applicants, prelaw advisors, and undergraduates from minority groups underrepresented in law school and the legal profession; testing and admission-related consultations with legal educators worldwide; and various publications, videos, and LSAT preparation tools.
Headquartered in Newtown, Pennsylvania, about 30 miles north of Philadelphia, the Council is best known for administering the Law School Admission Test (LSAT®). The LSAC administered 155,000 tests in 2010-2011. With the guidance and support of volunteers representing its member schools, LSAC provides a growing number of important services and programs for law schools and their applicants. LSAC does not engage in assessing an applicant´s chances for admission to any law school; all admission decisions are made by individual law schools.
Below you will find a brief description of LSAC´s services and programs. At the core of each is an ongoing commitment to expanding educational opportunities for underrepresented minorities, educationally disadvantaged persons, and people with disabilities.
