This information helps applicants gauge the LGBTQ climates of prospective law schools, providing another way to determine if a law school is the right fit for them.

Harris Thirsk will be responsible for leading LSAC’s customer engagement, brand strategy, and sales. She has 20 years of experience bringing products, services, and ideas to market for innovative brands including Microsoft, Arizona State University, and WE Communications.
