The Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) is committed to advancing teaching excellence, social justice and diversity. SALT is a community of progressive law teachers, law school administrators, librarians, academic support experts, students and affiliates. SALT has been working for more than 40 years to improve the legal profession, the law academy and expand the power of law to under-served communities.  SALT engages in work within and beyond the law school to advance social justice.

SALT also organizes several BA to JD Pipeline programs throughout the country, hosts Breaking In programs for legal educators, coordinates a mentor program for faculty, co-sponsors a diversity in law school leadership conference and hosts its biennial Teaching Conference. Further, SALT actively promotes human rights through position statements and amicus briefs.
