Earlier this year, LSAC announced a bold new initiative which envisioned a new, holistic pathway to law school. Initially called the “Legal Education Program,” we’re excited to share that it now has a new name: LawReady™.
The pilot will play a vital part in developing LSAC's new, holistic pathway to law school.
