The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) Research Grant Program funds research on a wide variety of topics related to the mission of the LSAC. Specifically included in the program's scope are projects investigating precursors to legal training, selection into law schools, legal education, and the legal profession. To be eligible for funding, a research project must inform either the process of selecting law students or legal education itself in a demonstrable way.
The program welcomes proposals for research proceeding from any of a variety of methodologies, a potentially broad range of topics, and varying time frames. The next application deadline is February 1. At the LSAC website, you can see the wide range of topics previously funded. They are not all topics about law school admissions; if you are thinking of a project related to legal education or the legal profession, it may well qualify.
