LST Recognition

Law School Transparency's research, policy papers, reports, and officers are frequently cited by traditional news organizations like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and NPR; legal news organizations like the National Law Journal and ABA Journal; important blogs like Above the Law and The Volokh Conspiracy; and scholarship and lawsuits. We develop legal education policy ideas, shape the national debate of these ideas, and challenge law schools, state bar associations, and the American Bar Association to change business as usual in the world of legal education.
