David KirschnerAssociate Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid David Kirschner has been named to the Law School Admission Council’s new Legal Education Program Advisory Committee. The new program was created to help students develop skills to prepare for and succeed in law school through academic courses, which count toward their major and graduation requirements. 
The LSAC initiative also offers internships, experiences and activities to help students explore career pathways, culminating with a portfolio of work and a certificate that students can include in their law school applications. 
“I am thrilled with the opportunity to serve on the advisory committee alongside prominent university presidents, law school deans and members of the private legal sector,” Kirschner says. “This is a wonderful opportunity to engage in an innovative and outside-of-the-box program that will hopefully help to increase access to law school.”
