Consulting for Law Schools

Our consulting services are individually tailored to assist your law school in reaching its institutional goals and vision for the future in the face of a rapidly changing legal education and employment landscape.

Our team has been a part of the strategic implementation of some of the very best practices in Admissions, Career Services, and Communications Departments — and we have taken these best practices to the 25+ law schools for which we have consulted.

We work with law schools on both a long-term and a short-term basis.

Short-term engagements may be as simple as assessing and making recommendations regarding a particular question or problem the law school is facing, such as when we consulted with a law school on whether they should open a new satellite campus in a larger city.

Long-term engagements provide the opportunity for lasting change and upward movement of the law school across metrics. For example, one school with whom we worked over time achieved an increase in applications greater than any other school for that cycle, over 90%, with a +3 median LSAT gain, a GPA gain of a full tenth of a point, and their most diverse class ever, all in a down cycle. The three schools with whom we have worked over the longest periods of time jumped a combined 30 places in the most recent U.S. News & World Report rankings. These are just a few examples of many.

Specifically, our services include:

  • Analysis of law school-wide departmental strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT)
  • SWOT analysis of individual law school departments
  • U.S. News & World Report Rankings analysis and recommendations
  • ABA accreditation assistance
  • Senior-level administrator search and recruitment assistance

Typical consulting engagements consist of our team spending 2-5 days meeting with a wide variety of law school stakeholders (either in person or virtually), then providing a data-centric report with actionable steps for improvement in each department. This report is as deep as it is thorough, and includes extensive competitor benchmarking and industry analysis as well as creative and differentiated ideas for new programs and initiatives. Our track record has been impeccable, and all of our past law school clients are able to attest to the value added we bring.
