Law School Transparency Seeks Members For Its Board Of Directors

About Us:
LST (2019)Law School Transparency is the leading force in legal education reform. Our mission is to make entry to the legal profession more transparent, affordable, and fair. Since our founding in 2009,
we’ve changed how people talk about law school. We’ve tackled accreditation at the national level,
lobbying the ABA to hold schools accountable and require more transparent data. Our regulatory
wins have protected future lawyers and the public. Our web platforms help thousands of applicants
make informed choices about law school each year. We also help journalists, researchers, and
policymakers understand the legal education landscape through data and analysis. LST’s work has
appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, National Law Journal, and dozens of
other legal and traditional media. Read more about LST’s impact and team.
