Established in 2009, Law School Transparency is a nonprofit legal education policy organization. We’re looking into legal education to hold law schools accountable, make access to the legal profession more affordable and fair, and provide quality and consistent information to prospective students and the public.

LST will contribute to the reform by holding other stakeholders accountable, by making relevant data and information easy to consume, and by pursuing policies that aim to make legal education better and more affordable. Reform starts with transparency and will end with a total reimagination of the modern law school.
