When AACRAO, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, held its annual Convention in Miami, FL, in 1978, an "idea" come to mind to those law school registrars and admissions officers who participated in one of AACRAO's professional schools workshops. They had such a good exchange of information that they said, in effect, "We should do this more often!"
The following year, at the AACRAO Convention in Chicago, plans for a network organized within AACRAO, but adapted specifically for law school registrars and admissions officers, were discussed in further detail. And finally, in 1980 when AACRAO met in New Orleans, this group of law school officers reached a consensus and said, "Let's do it." The organization, named the National Network of Law School Registrars and Admissions Officers, and referred to by its acronym NNLSO, was founded officially.
A steering committee was formed to guide the organization through its infancy. [As recorded by Nancy Kohlhoff.]

The National Network of Law School Officers (NNLSO) is a nonprofit, professional organization designed for the educational and professional development of all law school officers.
