What is the Law School Admission Test (LSAT)?
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) provides a wealth of information to students who are considering law school,
including information about the LSAT. The LSAT is a half-day, paper-based test made up of five 35-minute sections of multiple choice
questions and a 35-minute writing sample. The multiple-choice sections of the test
will fall into one of three categories:
- Reading comprehension
- Analytical reasoning
- Logical reasoning
When should I sign up for a test?
The LSAT is administered four times a year at designated testing centers across the
country. Seats are limited at each test site. You should register as soon as possible
to make sure you get a seat at the test center closest to you. Test takers are prohibited
from taking the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period.
What resources are available to help me prepare?
The LSAC website provides a number of free test-preparation resources, including test-taking strategies, sample questions and answers, and a complete practice
