LSAT Information

Students applying to law school are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The LSAT is an integral part of the law school admission process in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries.

The LSAT consists of five 35-minutes sections of multiple-choice questions designed to assess your abilities in reading comprehension, analytical reasoning, and logical reasoning. It also includes a 35-minute unscored writing sample which is sent to all the law schools to which you apply.

The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school: the reading and comprehension of complex texts with accuracy and insight; the organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it; the ability to think critically; and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others.
