Law School Admission Council (LSAC)

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC.org) is a nonprofit corporation that provides unique, state-of-the-art products and services to ease the admission process for law schools and their applicants worldwide. Currently, 221 law schools in the United States, Canada, and Australia are members of the Council, including all law schools approved by the American Bar Association (ABA), 17 Canadian law schools, and one Australian law school. The Council’s offices are located in Newtown, Pennsylvania, USA.

Founded in 1947, LSAC is best known for administering the Law School Admission Test (LSAT®), with about 100,000 tests administered annually at testing centers throughout the world. LSAC also processes academic credentials for an average of 60,000 law school applicants annually, provides essential software and information for admission offices and applicants, conducts educational conferences for law school professionals and prelaw advisors, sponsors and publishes research, funds diversity and other outreach grant programs, and publishes LSAT preparation books and law school guides, among many other services. LSAC does not engage in assessing an applicant's chances for admission to any law school; all admission decisions are made by individual law schools.
