I’m excited to announce the thinkLaw Advisory Board (tLAB) board! These leaders in the critical thinking revolution are joining us to advise, support, advocate, and deliver strategy and product feedback to ensure that our program continues to serve schools and students well.

I am so grateful to have each one of these individuals on our team!
