The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all 202 LSAC member law schools. The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school:

  1. Reading and comprehension of complex tests with accuracy and insight
  2. Organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it
  3. Ability to reason critically
  4. Analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and argument of others

The LSAT provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.

See the LSAT website for available test dates, times, and locations.
