... an opportunity to provide a new, guided holistic pathway to law school for undergraduate students. That is what LSAC’s Legal Education Program is all about.
Today, December 3, is the United Nations’ International Day of Persons With Disabilities. The U.N. has marked this occasion since 1992, and the goal of the observance is to “promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.” That goal is at the core of our mission at LSAC, where we’ve worked hard to help people with disabilities enter the legal profession and add their diverse voices to our justice system.
The late Janet Reno, who served as attorney general under President Bill Clinton from 1993 through 2001, once remarked that the more research we conduct in the arena of equity, the clearer it becomes that we need to reach further and further back in the pipeline if we are to address barriers where they begin. 
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) has evolved over the years, but it has remained the gold standard in legal education since it was introduced over 70 years ago. Accepted by every law school in the country, over 100,000 people take it every year, and 99.6% of the people who entered law school last year used the LSAT in their applications.
