IMPORTANT! MPRE TEST CENTER CLOSINGS for November 12, 2018

Due to super typhoon, the following test center has closed for the Monday, November 12, 2018 MPRE administration.

The Law School Admission Council, the leader in assessments, data, and technology for legal education, has named Melissa Harris Thirsk as its chief marketing officer. 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. 

Transition to digital testing will begin with July 2019 test; LSAT will be fully digital in North America starting September 2019.

LSAT will be offered 9 times in the 2019–2020 test cycle to expand candidate access and choice.

 

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) today announced the schedule for transitioning the LSAT—the assessment tool used by over 99% of all law school applicants—to a digital format beginning with the July 2019 LSAT test.

The Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) is proud to announce that Ajay K. Mehrotra, executive director of the American Bar Foundation (ABF) and professor of law at Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law; Camille A. Nelson, dean of American University Washington College of Law; and Kellye Y. Testy, president and chief executive officer of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), have joined the LSSSE National Advisory Board.

Discover Law at LSAC.org

September 11, 2018

On September 12, discovering law will be much easier. That’s when LSAC’s new, completely redesigned LSAC.org debuts. The new site will be easier and more intuitive to navigate for all users, with better presentation of streamlined content, less dense text and more photos and videos, and optimized usability on phones and other devices. And, the site will feature a new Discover Law page with all the information prospective students need to get started on their path to law.

You may have seen some social media posts or news articles implying that LSAC is associated with a test prep book that includes politically biased material. It is important for you to know that LSAC is not associated in any way with the Windham Press LSAT Prep Book that is mentioned in the original article. They do not license official LSAT content.

That type of question would never appear on an LSAT or on any of our preparatory materials because:

Aspiring Law School Students Can Now Receive a Personalized Study Plan for the LSAT with Official Practice Questions from the Maker of the Test, the Law School Admission Council.
Inspiration to pursue a legal education can come from many different directions—a friend or relative, a perceived injustice, or even a new TV show. LSAC has added another source of inspiration—a fellowship that supports emerging leaders who will work to inspire prospective students to pursue legal education by developing innovative pathways to advance justice and the rule of law. LSAC’s first Presidential Innovation Fellow is Miguel Willis, the 2016 National Jurist Law Student of the Year.

Annmarie Levins joined LSAC in December as Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer. She will be working closely on business strategy with LSAC President and CEO Kellye Testy and the rest of LSAC’s leadership team.
