About the LSAT

The LSAT is a standardized test required for admission to all American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law schools in the United States, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools. Administered by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC), the LSAT is an important standard that aids law schools in the evaluation of applicants.

About the Test

The LSAT test measures reading and reasoning skills that are considered essential for success in law school. The test is given 4 times a year: June, September (or sometimes October), December and February.

The School of Law will accepted all four test administration for fall admission.

The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions followed by a 35-minute writing sample. 

  • Reading comprehension
  • Analytical reasoning
  • Logical reasoning
  • Writing sample (not scored)

About the Scores

Scores range from 120 to 180. Your LSAT score is based on the number of questions you answer correctly within the 4 sections of the exam. You will not be penalized for incorrect answers.

The writing sample is not scored by LSAC, but is forwarded to the law schools to which you are applying and can be used in the evaluation of your application.
