LSAC DEI and the Law Listening Tour

LSAC Chief Diversity Officer, Angela Winfield, believes that people learn more when they listen than when they talk. This is important because the legal education community is currently considering, debating, and striving to understand issues and challenges that will impact not just the future of our legal education system, but the soul of our country and the direction it will take for decades to come.

With her core belief in the value of listening before talking, Angela is reaching out to individuals and organizations to better understand their diversity, equity, and inclusion concerns, challenges, opportunities, and recommendations regarding the legal education pipeline. Angela fervently believes that our success is bound together and that she needs your voice, your stories, and your input to inform which impact areas will make a real, tangible, and positive difference for both marginalized and minoritized individuals interested in pursuing legal careers as well as for the legal industry and justice system as a whole.

In September Angela will begin the six-month LSAC DEI and the Law Listening Tour that will take her across North America. To request that Angela visit your organization, please complete the request form below.

Our Commitment

“We will not rest until every person who has the potential to succeed in law, regardless of their identity, is given the opportunity and resources to do so.”
