The LSAT is a standardized test required for all law school applicants. It is a half-day exam with 5 multiple choice segments of 35 minutes each. Four of the five sections contribute to score – there is an unscored writing sample at end of test. Your score will be on a scale between 120 to 180.

The test is offered multiple times throughout the year. For current year dates and registration information visit the LSAC website. We recommend that students take the LSAT sometime before October in the year in which they plan to apply to law schools (i.e. if you plan to send out applications in the fall of 2020, take the LSAT prior to October, optimally the spring or summer of 2020).

Do not take official test to "practice" - all scores are reported to law schools.
