    This program will feature newly emerging empirical research related to gatekeeping, key decision making stages that affect students’ admission to law school, success during law school, and entry into the legal profession. The presenters will focus on preparing diverse students for law school, grading and inequity in law school, new pathways for licensure, and the disparate impact of bar exam cut-off scores. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our panel will include current empirical research on these critical gatekeeping moments and discuss how they may be, are being, or have been impacted and disrupted by the pandemic.
