We know that the data LSAC collects about the applicant pool is an important benefit for law schools and prelaw advisors. To make this data even more accessible, LSAC’s Applicant and Application Volume Summary data reporting has undergone a major makeover. With our new, interactive report, users can easily see the increase or decrease in applicant and application volumes across the US and Canada. The aggregate data is available to all without a password. The best feature of these reports is that they are updated every evening! Please don’t hesitate to contact Josiah Evans, LSAC’s assistant director of social science research, at reports.feedback@LSAC.org if you have any questions or suggestions for improvements of these reports.
In early July, LSAC will launch a major national digital ad campaign to highlight the importance of the rule of law, promote the value of a law degree, and build a diverse pipeline of new lawyers.
LSAC is committed to providing students an opportunity to learn the skills they need most to do well on the LSAT and succeed in law school. Since our partnership with Khan Academy was first announced in early 2017, both organizations have been hard at work to bring that vision to life. At our annual meeting, LSAC’s President Kellye Testy will join Sal Khan, founder and CEO of Khan Academy, to celebrate the official unveiling of Khan Academy Official LSAT Prep on KhanAcademy.org. We can’t wait to offer personalized online LSAT practice available to all for free!
