Susan L. Krinsky, Associate Dean for Student Affairs at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, is the new chair of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). She will serve a two-year term.
In her first speech as chair, Dean Krinsky emphasized that her priority is to increase diversity in legal education and the legal profession, and that she is committed to continuing and building upon LSAC’s leadership in this area. She added, “I want to ensure that LSAC is in a position to provide the law school admission community with the tools we need to do the best possible job of getting prospective law students into the law school pipeline.”
Dean Krinsky served as chair-elect for one year, as specified in LSAC’s bylaws. On May 30, 2015, at LSAC’s Annual Meeting and Educational Conference in Coronado, California, Dean Krinsky completed the transition to chair when Dean Athornia Steele (Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center) completed his two-year term.
Dean Krinsky’s service as a volunteer in LSAC’s governance structure began in 1984. She has participated on or chaired nearly all of LSAC’s standing committees as well as many subcommittees and work groups. She was previously elected to serve a four-year term on LSAC’s Board of Trustees in 2004.
