Technical Level: Low
Over the past 7 years, the Law School Admission Council has become the preeminent player in providing technology-based services to the law school admission offices. In its special position as a membership organization made up of the 196 U.S. ABA-approved law schools and 15 Canadian law schools, LSAC is not ?just another vendor? but is an organization integral to establishment of these services. They are continually being asked to provide more services for law school applicants, law school admission offices and other related contingencies.
During the fall of 2005, technology professionals from 135 law schools participated in four regional technology conferences which were hosted by LSAC. The topics of these conferences covered a general overview of LSAC but focused on their next generation admission services named ACES2. An update on ACES2 will be presented later on in this conference. This session will focus on what LSAC has done over the recent past, its plans for the next couple of years, and its strategic vision of the types of services that may be offered in the future.
Bruce Bachman, Vice President of the Information Services Division and Chief Information Officer for LSAC will present the past, present and future. With an IT organization numbering over 100 people, Bruce will also be happy to share any insights and ideas that he has as a CIO in a company dedicated to law school services.
