LSAC's LawReady™

Law School Preparation Starts Here

LSAC is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance law and justice by promoting access, equity, and fairness in law school admission and supporting learning journeys from prelaw through practice. As the developer of the LSAT, we have decades of experience in assessment science and in supporting the journeys of generations of aspiring lawyers. Developed in collaboration with a group of exceptional leaders and thinkers from undergraduate education, law schools, and the legal profession, LawReady builds on leading research and our experience as a holistic program designed to meet students interested in law earlier in their undergraduate studies. This innovative approach enhances prelaw education and guidance that may already exist on campus and works in collaborative partnership with colleges and universities to provide students with a roadmap to develop the crucial skills, abilities, and personal qualities they will need to succeed in law school and beyond.
