Benefits of LawReady
LawReady: The Student Experience
Students who participate in LawReady will take courses which already exist on their campus and have been identified as being aligned to the skills critical for law school success. They will check in on their academic progress through LSAC-designed measures including quizzes, assessments, and scoring rubrics. They will explore different pathways to law careers through mentorships, tailored resources, and activities; receive personalized support with the law school application process from LSAC experts; and develop a sense of belonging during their exploration of law school and the legal profession by building relationships through peer affinity groups and participating in insightful workshops and events on their campus.
The program will culminate with a portfolio of work, and students who demonstrate proficiency on key skills based on their performance on the LawReady assessments will earn the LawReady certificate, signaling their readiness for law school. This certificate can be submitted to law schools when students are ready to apply.
Building the LawReady Progam for the Future
LSAC is working with law schools, undergraduate institutions, students, leaders in the legal profession, and other stakeholders to develop LawReady. This initiative builds on LSAC’s years of experience in supporting law schools and students.
