LSAC Resources for Law School Deans

LSAC was created by law deans who wanted to make legal education accessible and equitable. As a law school dean, you play an important role in bringing together the people, the processes, and the systems to support students and help them thrive. You shape the future of the legal profession, working within a dynamic context. You must not only manage what’s happening within your law school and university, but also stay on top of what’s happening externally in your community, nationally, and beyond.

A Note from LSAC Interim President and CEO, Susan L. Krinsky

Whether you are new to your role as dean or have been a dean for many years, LSAC’s Deans’ Resources page will help you do a tough job better. I encourage you to bookmark this page as you’ll find resources yearlong that can help you:

  • Build your pipeline, advise prelaw students, and support others in those efforts
  • Foster an inclusive law school environment
  • Analyze data and meet your unique enrollment goals
  • Grow professionally and support the professional development of your staff

Please reach out to me or any of my colleagues at LSAC throughout the year if we can be of service in any way. We’re here to help you succeed as we advance our mission.

Lastly, thank you for committing your life’s work to advancing law and justice. LSAC was created more than seven decades ago by law deans who wanted to make legal education accessible and equitable. As the legal education landscape is shifting, I am invigorated to push even farther and faster to fulfill our mission. I appreciate that we are in this together.

Best Regards,
Susan L. Krinsky

Admission Assessment

The LSAT is a highly valid and reliable standardized test designed specifically for law school admission, and with input from law schools on the skills that matter most. Correlation studies consistently show that the LSAT is the single best predictor of first-year law school success, and that the LSAT score combined with undergraduate GPA is the best predictor of all. LSAC is also developing an additional pathway to legal education through its LawReady program.

Enrollment Management

The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) provides a convenient way to holistically assess applicants. The CAS packages applicants’ LSAT scores, undergraduate transcripts, and other documentation into a standard report, making file review and admission operations faster and more efficient. It is available via LSAC Unite®, a customer relationship and enrollment management platform that enables law schools to build, nurture, and manage the pipeline of prospective students.
