The Law School Admission Council (LSAC), headquartered in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., is a not-for-profit organisation committed to promoting quality, access, and equity in law and education worldwide by supporting individuals’ enrolment journeys and providing pre-eminent assessment, data, and technology services.
Each year, LSAC helps more than 60,000 law school candidates navigate the admission process and provides the essential admission software and data relied upon by more than 220 member law schools in the United States, Canada, and Australia. LSAC is best known for developing and administering the Law School Admission Test (LSAT®) for over 70 years. More than 138,000 LSATs are administered annually at over 920 testing centres worldwide. LSAC does not assess an applicant's chances for admission to any law school; all admission decisions are made by individual law schools.
The LSAT is one of the many products and services offered by the Council’s approximately 350 employees. LSAC is the only major testing organisation that has developed a completely electronic, web-accessible clearinghouse for collecting and transmitting undergraduate transcripts, letters of recommendation, and law school applications. The data reports generated from this system provide essential information to the legal education community.
