Law School Transparency’s has two primary, though closely related goals:
Ultimately, these two goals are about accountability and challenging the status quo.
In our efforts to help prospective students make more informed decisions about whether to and where to attend law school, we have used dialogue and advocacy to improve access to consumer data and to correct the view that law school is a ticket to financial security. We reorganize the consumer data to present a clear, comparable, and fair picture of the present economic realities of attending law school to prospective students and policy makers. These strategies necessarily impact our second goal because of the ever-growing disconnect between the cost of attending law school and graduate employment outcomes.
Law School Transparency is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from across the legal profession. Our staff and advisory board are made up of a mixture of attorneys, faculty, and current law students.
As always, we appreciate any comments you might have on ways to build upon or improve our efforts. Please send us any comments you may have.
