The Law School Admission Council created the ambassadors program to assist you in supporting the success of candidates during their legal education journey and to help LSAC fulfill its mission of increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in legal education.
LSAC Ambassadors are trained experts in law school admission matters. Through educational presentations and professional consultations, they provide both law school candidates and legal education professionals with encouragement, current information, and instruction on how to utilize the vast array of tools available on LSAC.org. Ambassadors also introduce participants to a dedicated network of member law schools and prelaw advisors available to help them succeed.
