LSAT

Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

The LSAT is a standardized test used by law schools to compare the academic performance/readiness of applicants across the country to one another. The LSAT tests your abilities to read and comprehend complex texts with accuracy and insight; organize and manage information and draw reasonable inferences from it; think critically; and analyze and evaluate the reasoning and arguments of others. This exam is difficult and should be taken seriously with significant preparation including study and practice exams.

The LSAT is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers, typically on a Saturday, except in June, when it is generally administered on a Monday. Students may take the LSAT no more than three times in any two-year period. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in June or September—is often advised.

Students can register for the LSAT online. For more detailed information, visit the official LSAC webpage.
