LAW SCHOOL ADMISSION TEST (LSAT)

GENERAL INFORMATION:

The LSAT is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all 199 LSAC member schools.  It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of the several factors in assessing applicants.

The test consists of five (5) sections of multiple-choice questions.  Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker’s score.  These sections include one reading comprehension section, one analytical reasoning section, and two logical reasoning sections.  The un-scored section typically is used to pretest new test items and to pre-equate new test forms.  A 30-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test.  The writing sample is not score by LSAC, but copies are sent to all schools to which you apply.  The score scale is 120-180.

The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school:  the reading and comprehension of complex tests 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.
