WASHINGTON, D.C.—It’s official—the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is investing in legal education opportunities for persons from traditionally under-represented racial and ethnic groups, low-income and disadvantaged communities in the form of a major financial gift to the Council on Legal Education Opportunity, Inc. (CLEO).

Officials from CLEO and LSAC signed Memorandum of Understanding at a May 10 ceremony in Washington, D.C. Womble Carlyle D.C. Office Managing Partner Pam Rothenberg represented Womble Carlyle at the ceremony. Rothenberg is a long-time CLEO Board member.
