Imagine ...

... 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.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is posing challenges across the board for law schools, but student affairs professionals are dealing with particular challenges as they communicate with incoming first-year students. To gain some insight into what these students should know as we approach an uncertain fall semester, I recently hosted a webinar with three student affairs professionals: Stephanie Carlos, assistant dean for student affairs at University of San Francisco School of Law; Bayrex Martí, assistant dean for student affairs at University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law; and Ethan Rosenzweig, associate dean for enrollment management and student services at Emory University School of Law.
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.
