Building a Diverse and Inclusive Future of Justice
The Law School Admission Council was founded upon the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, with the purpose of opening access to legal education on a fair basis. It has always been our belief that the legal profession should mirror the diversity of society, and our mission to build a just and prosperous world in which equality exists for all — which we pursue through numerous programs and initiatives designed to enhance opportunities for individuals from underrepresented groups to add their unique voices to the future of justice. We look forward to engaging with you on this and other important topics at the AALS Annual Meeting.
