About LST

LST is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in Georgia. We were founded in 2009 (in Tennessee) by Kyle McEntee and Patrick Lynch. Our mission is to make entry to the legal profession more transparent, affordable, and fair. 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.

LST is one of the nation's most trusted sources for information and analysis on legal education issues. From data and research tools to an expert staff and widely-read publications, we provide resources for journalists, researchers, policymakers, and students. Our research, policy papers, reports, and staff are routinely cited by traditional and legal news organizations, popular blogs, and academic scholarship.

Our work can be loosely broken into two categories: consumer advocacy and consumer information. You can read more about LST's previous impact, resources, and vision here.
