ACES2 – The new tool for your admissions office from LSAC

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low

All Law school admissions offices have been using ACES to communicate and exchange data with the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) for the past 7 years and over 150 law schools have elected to use LSAC’s Admit-M product as their primary admissions database. Beginning in the summer of 2006 LSAC is merging these two products into a single next generation admissions system called ACES2.

This session is an overview of the technical aspects of this next generation admission system and is an update to the ACES2 technical conferences LSAC held around the country in the fall of 2005. ACES2 will allow law schools to have a system which uses the latest technologies and advances, and which will serve as the launching pad for new services that can be provided by LSAC over the next 10+ years. The goals of the new system will be to merge ACES and Admit-M into one seamless application, to automate as much of the transfer of data as possible, and to provide easy access to data for admissions professionals in the office and on the road. Details will be given on ACES2’s interaction with schools systems as well as the application’s security, office software integration, reporting capabilities, maintenance and architecture.
