Exam information

What you need to know about the LSAT

The LSAT is one part of the admission process to law school in the United States, Canada, and some other countries. It includes five 35-minute timed sections of multiple-choice questions, of these types:

• Analytical Reasoning
• Logical Reasoning

These three question types may appear in any of the five sections.

Your score on only four of the five sections will be counted. The remaining section is used to try out new test questions and will not be counted toward your score. This unused section will only be identified in your score report.

At the end of the test, you will have 35 minutes to construct a sample of your writing. This will not be scored, but a copy of it will be sent with your scores to each institution receiving them.

Your score report will include your current score, older LSAT scores in the past 5 years, and a percentile ranking that compares your score with other test-takers in the past 3 years.

Exam facts

When is it available?

The LSAT is given four times each year, on Saturdays in the United States. Test dates are in June, September/October, December, and February. Special Monday sessions are offered for people who observe Saturday as a Sabbath. International administrations may fall on days other than Saturday. Check here for more scheduling information.

LSAT scores from December or before are usually required for law school applications for the following fall. It is highly recommended, however, that you take the test before December, such as in June or September/October, in case emergency rescheduling is necessary.

You will also need to consider choosing a date according to the availability of “disclosed” testing. A “disclosed” LSAT administration simply means that you will have access to a more complete score report. Most LSAT test dates in the U.S. are disclosed. Find more information about this topic on the official Law School Admission Council LSAT page here.

What are some Tips & Tricks

Familiarity will be your ally when you take the LSAT. This test is divided into sections, but the types of questions are mixed within these sections. Become familiar with the types of questions you will see. Also, become comfortable working with a time limit. As you practice, do so with a timer. This way, you will not have any unpleasant surprises to distract you on test day.

How much time is allowed?

The LSAT is listed as a half-day test, but it is wise to allow a time span of about 7 hours for the entire testing process.
