What is LSAT?

The LSAT® (Law School Admission Test) is a standardized test, administered by the Law School Admission Councils or LSAC. The LSAT is an admission test, required by Law Schools and Universities in the United States and Canada for admission into their Law Programs. 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 each year (February, June, October and December) in a pencil and paper format at designated testing centers throughout the world.

The LSAT consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions and lasts for 3 hours and 25 minutes.

The examination consists of the following sections:

  • Reading Comprehension questions pertain to how the test taker is able to understand passages similar to topics which he/she may encounter in law school.
  • Analytical Reasoning meanwhile requires analysis of various topics and the relationships between items like the subject person, event, or things.
  • The Logical Reasoning part involves questions to test the ability of the test-taker on reasoning, analogy, arguments, and principles.
  • The Experimental part of the test may involve either games, arguments, or more reading comprehension related items.
  • The Essay or Writing sample is a final part, which is not given a score by the LSAC but copies of the writing sample are sent to all law schools to which you apply.

 

Question Type Sections Questions Time
Reading Comprehension 1 27 35 min.
Logical Reasoning 2 25 35 min.
Analytical Reasoning 1 24 35 min.

 The LSAT score ranges from 120 to 180. You can get your score by:

E-mail: LSAT takers who have LSAC.org accounts will automatically receive their LSAT scores by e-mail approximately three weeks after taking the test. This is the quickest way to obtain your LSAT score, and there is no additional charge.

 

Regular mail: LSAC will send score reports by mail approximately four weeks after each test. Test takers who have LSAC.org accounts will pay a one-time fee to obtain hard-copy mailings of account information that is available online.

How to Have Reports Sent to Law Schools?

You do not give LSAC the names of the law schools to which you want your reports to be sent. For US law schools simply pay for the number of LSDAS reports you need because right after you apply to a law school, the school will request your LSDAS Law School Report directly from LSAC. There is no additional charge for LSAT Law School Reports. When LSAC receives the law school’s request, that particular school will be added to your file and will be sent the report as soon as your information is available.

You can find law school at http://www.lsac.org/LSAC.asp?url=lsac/law-school-links.asp.

How long are LSAT Scores Valid?

The LSAC will keep your scores on file for five years after you take the test. If you take the test multiple times, it will keep track of each score and give you an average score and a list of each score you received. The LSAC will remove some of your older scores after five years passes. For example, if you take the test in April and December of 2014, your scores are only valid until April and December of 2019.

How many times can I take the LSAT?

Normally, you may not take the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period. This policy applies even if you cancel your score or it is not otherwise reported.
