Professional Development for Administrators

As a higher education professional, it’s important for you to keep abreast of trends, developments, policies and advances in your field. AccessLex Institute can help.

Graduate and Professional Financial Aid Conference

For nearly 30 years, the AccessLex Graduate and Professional Financial Aid Conference has provided unsurpassed programming to help new and veteran graduate and professional school administrators navigate through industry changes and gain invaluable professional training. The Conference is developed in conjunction with an all-volunteer planning committee from graduate and professional schools from across the country. Whether you’re in financial aid, admissions, student or career services or other student-facing roles the Conference is for you — professionals committed to serving and supporting graduate and professional students.

Legal Education Research Symposium

Following great success in 2015, its inaugural year, the AccessLex Legal Education Research Symposium is pleased to offer law school deans, administrators, faculty and researchers from across the nation greater opportunity to engage in thought-provoking discussions on the most challenging issues facing legal education today.

The 2017 Legal Education Research Symposium is scheduled for November 8-9, 2017. The 2017 Graduate and Professional Financial Aid Conference, the 30th anniversary of this flagship event, is scheduled for November 9-11. Both events will be held at the Opal Sands Resort in Clearwater, FL.


In conjunction with AccessLex Institute's Financial Education Advisory Committee (FEAC), we published these reports which offer proven techniques and helpful best practices for school administrators like you to use to establish a thriving financial education program at your school. The topics in these reports were identified through the Survey of Financial Education Practices at Graduate and Professional Institutions and Programs. This three-part series will equip you with both proven and “hot-off-the-presses” ideas to build and grow your program — and better reach your students.
