Law School Admission Test

What is the LSAT?

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all 202 law schools that are members of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). 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 a year at hundreds of locations around the world. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in October—is often advised.


Almost all LSAC-member law schools in the United States will also require that you register for the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). To find out if you are required to register for LSDAS, see LSDAS Candidate Requirements.
