“As one of more than 35 organizations dedicated to advancing diversity in higher education who filed an amicus brief in this case, the Law School Admission Council applauds today’s decision. This ruling upholds the careful and appropriate balance that the Courts have forged over four decades, allowing colleges and universities to consider race and ethnicity as one part of a comprehensive admission policy.

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. 

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.

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.
