Headquartered in Newtown, Pennsylvania, the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a non-profit corporation whose goal is to provide the highest quality admission-related services for legal education institutions and their applicants throughout the world.
More than 220 law schools in Canada, the United States, and Australia benefit from LSAC’s services. These services include:
- the Law School Admission Test (LSAT);
- the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) encompassing letters of recommendation, electronic applications, and domestic and international transcript processing for JD and graduate law degrees;
- the Candidate Referral Service (CRS);
- admission office systems and software;
- research and statistical reports;
- websites for law schools, applicants, prelaw advisors, and undergraduates from minority groups underrepresented in law school and the legal profession; and
- testing and admission-related consultations with legal educators worldwide; and various publications, videos, and LSAT preparation tools.
The Law School Admission Council is best known for administering the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), and administers about 100,000 tests a year. With the help of volunteers representing its member schools, LSAC provides a growing number of important services and programs for law schools and their applicants. However, it does not assess an applicant’s chances for admission to law school; all admission decisions are made by individual law schools.
