LSAT – Law School Admission Test



The LSAT is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all 197 law schools that are members of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). 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 test is administered four times a year at hundreds of locations around the world.

Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in June or October—is often advised. The registration fee for the LSAT is $90. Late registrants must pay an additional $54. Go to www.lsat.org (or www.lsac.org) for more information on how to register, how to prepare for the test, how to choose a law school, and how to manage the entire application process. You can also download a free sample test, and order former tests and preparation books. The site is very comprehensive.
