Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

<-- Back to Admissions, Entrance & Academic Exams

The Law School Admission Test is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers throughout the world. All American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many other law schools require applicants to take the LSAT as part of their admission and selection process. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.

The LSAT is administered on a Saturday, except in June, when it is generally administered on a Monday. For Saturday Sabbath observers, the test is also administered on a weekday following Saturday administrations.

Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken in December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier – in June or October – is often advised. The LSAT is typically offered in February, June, October, and December. The LSAT is developed and governed by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
