Dear Friends,


As you may be aware, I was recently named to Law School Transparency's (LST) board of directors. LST is a non-profit founded five years ago that helps prospective law students make informed decisions about whether and where to attend law school. LST organizes and shares real consumer information with tens of thousands of applicants each year who are looking to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a law degree.


LST has made an enormous impact on legal education through its tireless advocacy efforts, but it still has much to accomplish. For example, schools still hide unfavorable jobs data and the ABA still does not adequately enforce its own standards prohibiting deceptive marketing. I believe that LST will continue to be a major force for accountability. This is why I joined the board and  pledged to raise $10,000.


Where does the money go? Every dollar LST spends is an investment in students and the legal profession. LST provides data at no charge on a website ( they must maintain and host. LST also needs to fund a full-time executive director and a heavy travel schedule to help get the word out.


What is my pledge to LST and you?  I am absolutely committed to raising $10,000 for LST.  I am personally funding my expenses and registration fee (~$1,000) to run this 5k August 24th, at the top of Vail Mountain at 10,000 feet above sea level. At the end of race day, I will hand LST $10,000. Ideally, this will come from friends and supporters who think LST’s mission is as important as I do.

Every little bit helps. Please consider giving by clicking on the contribute button and know that this will mean a good deal to a lot of people, including me.


Many thanks for your support,

Mike Spivey
