Are you seeking an LSAT preparation course or LSAT study materials? Then you've come to the right place!
Legal Training Center offers LSAT training and prep courses for those individuals who are preparing to take the LSAT test.
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is required for admission to all ABA–approved law schools, some non–ABA–approved law schools, and most Canadian law schools. The LSAT is a standardized test that measures reading and verbal reasoning skills, and is one of many factors law schools use in determining applicants’ qualifications. Some schools place more importance than others on a candidate’s LSAT test scores.
The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school. The test is comprised of questions that attempt to measure the following:
Reading Comprehension Questions
These questions measure your ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law school work. The reading comprehension section contains four sets of reading questions, each consisting of a selection of reading material, followed by five to eight questions that test reading and reasoning abilities.
Analytical Reasoning Questions
These questions are designed to measure your ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure. You are asked to make deductions from a set of statements, rules, or conditions that describe relationships among entities such as persons, places, things, or events. They simulate the kinds of detailed analyses of relationships that a law student must perform in solving legal problems.
Logical Reasoning Questions
These questions are designed to evaluate your ability to understand, analyze, criticize, and complete a variety of arguments. Each logical reasoning question requires you to read and comprehend a short passage, then answer one question about it. The questions test a variety of abilities involved in reasoning logically and thinking critically. Examination Requirements
The test is consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to the candidate’s score; the unscored section, called the variable section, is used to pretest new test questions. Further, a 35-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test. This writing sample is not graded, but copies are furnished to all law schools to which a candidate applies.
The test is administered four times per year (generally June, October, December and February) at hundreds of locations around the world (click here for test center locations). Exam results are provided via email (to those with LSAC online accounts) approximately three weeks after taking the test, or by mail approximately four weeks after taking the test.
An individual may take the LSAT test more than once, though not more than three times in any two-year period. Data shows that scores generally only improve slightly with each attempt.
Law school applicants in the United States must also register with the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). Nearly all American Bar Association-approved law schools (and some non-ABA-approved schools) require that applicants use the Law School Data Assembly Service.
The LSDAS centralizes and standardizes the undergraduate academic records of law school applicants to simplify the US law school admission process. The LSDAS prepares a report for each law school to which candidates apply. The law school report contains information that the schools use, along with one’s application, personal essay, letters of recommendation, and other criteria, to make their admission decisions.
There is a separate registration fee for the LSDAS.
