Angelo Binno & Shelesha Taylor v. Law School Admission Council
Nyman Turkish Fought and Won to Change the Legal Profession
In a groundbreaking case that will forever change the legal profession, Managing Partner Jason Turkish, secured a monumental victory for his clients, Angelo Binno and Shelesha Taylor, blind law school applicants, against the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). Binno and Taylor challenged the fairness of the Logic Games section on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), which requires test takers to draw pictures and diagrams to answer questions, something Binno, Taylor, and other blind applicants simply could not do.
The LSAC will be doing away with the Logic Games section in August 2024 and replacing it with an additional logical reasoning section, making the LSAT more accessible and equitable for all aspiring law students.
Turkish views this as an important step for blind law school applicants and the legal profession. Noting there is a disproportionate lack of blind and disabled lawyers, and the removal of this barrier will allow a talented group of prospective lawyers to enter the profession and change the world for the better.
