Our mission is to make legal education accessible

The LSAT is the gateway to the legal profession, and thus it is the gateway to key positions in our society. But those who are unable to hire $150/hr tutors, or take $1000 LSAT prep courses have been at an unfair disadvantage. Until now.

We want to level the playing field. Top-notch, high-quality LSAT instruction should be affordable, and we have worked hard to do just that. We started off releasing free explanations of LSAT questions, aiming to explain every single one, but it wasn't long before copyright lawyers crashed the party. They demanded a licensing fee and electronic protections every time we show an LSAT question. So, while we have to charge for access, the goal has always been, and will continue to be, to liberate legal education.

  • This is why we release hundreds of our videos, including every LSAT Logic Games explanation, for free here.
  • This is why we donate our entire curriculum to PreProBono students.
  • This is why we offer our course for dramatically less than every other major company we know of.

We make LSAT preparation easier and more affordable, so that you can go to law school and become a lawyer.

    J.Y. Ping

    Founder

    J.Y. is an educator figuring out ways to bring down the cost of education while improving its quality and accessibility. “This is how we liberate and democratize education!” he likes to say to himself. He says a lot of things to himself. Not all of it makes sense.

    J.Y. graduated from Columbia University where he studied Economics, Political Science, and Philosophy and holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School. Before finding his calling in education, J.Y. pretended to be a lawyer at Paul, Weiss in Hong Kong and at Davis Polk in NYC.

    J.Y. is also a founder at PreProBono, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping poor and minority students get into law school and promoting public interest law.
