Law School Admission Council (LSAC)
LSAC is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance law and justice by encouraging diverse, talented individuals to study law and by supporting their enrollment and learning journeys from prelaw through practice. LSAC provides products and services that support candidates and schools throughout the law school admission process, and innovative solutions to expand and diversify the range of prelaw students, enhance student outcomes in law school, and support legal professionals throughout their careers.
Helping Advance Student Success And Networking Initiative (HASSANI) was created to help diversify the legal profession that currently lacks an adequate representation of minorities (less than 20% are POC). Applying for law school is an extremely complex application process. For minorities who may not have access to an abundance of financial and professional resources compared to other persons, law school may seem like an almost unattainable goal. This program was created to inspire and help aspiring law students attain their goal of someday being an attorney.
Persons who are interested in law school or have even contemplated the thought of someday being an attorney are encouraged to apply to be one of our mentees. Students will have the option of choosing to be either a long term or short term mentee. Long term mentees are those who need assistance with the drafting of law school application materials, including resumes, personal statements, diversity statements, and other addendums. Short term mentees are those who just want to meet with a mentor once or twice as needed. This is more informational, and mentees likely only need advice.
Perks to the program include:
- receiving access to our LSAT resource bank (donated books/resources from law students);
- assistance with navigating the law school application process;
- assistance with the drafting of all law school application materials;
- access to our networking events/panels where we will invite current law students, professors, judges, and other legal professionals so that mentees may expand their professional network; and
- mentees who participate in the program that are accepted at GGU School of Law, and also matriculate at GGU School of Law shall receive a book voucher to buy textbooks at the GGU bookstore (1k value).
- Also, this program is completely FREE for mentees!
The program is open to all persons who are interested in participating. However, preference will be given to: Bay Area residents; BIPOC; persons with a financial need; persons with a disability; persons who identify as LGBTQI+; Jewish persons; and first generation college/law students. Current enrollment at a university/college is NOT required for this program, nor is this program limited to students from any particular college/university. All persons are welcome to apply. Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis until all spots are filled. However, PLEASE NOTE that the program officially begins in Fall '22.

This program was named in honor of Hassani Bell, a young Bay Area native who sadly passed away in 2021. Hassani was an inspirational activist and leader, who always fought for what he believed in. Hassani was an SFSU student who participated in the 2016 SFSU Hunger Strike, which ultimately led to the school preserving and enhancing the college of Ethnic Studies. He aspired to someday become an ethnic studies professor and even thought about going to law school. Hassani’s life was cut short, but his legacy will live on forever. Rest in Power Hassani!
