Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all ABA-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools.  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.  Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall.  However, taking the test earlier—in June or October—is often advised.

IMPORTANT: Electronic devices, including cell phones, are not permitted in the test center, and the use of any electronic device is strictly prohibited. Any test taker discovered in possession of an electronic device, including but not limited to cell phones, pay phones, pagers, iPods™ or other media players, or personal computers, will be dismissed from the test. This policy will be enforced from the time test takers arrive at the test center until they leave at the conclusion of the test—including the break. Violations will be grounds for score cancellation. LSAC and test center staff assume no responsibility for personal items.


Your LSAT score is based on the number of questions answered correctly (your raw score). All questions on the various test sections are weighted exactly the same. The total number you get right is what matters for your score, not which particular questions you get right or wrong. There is no deduction for incorrect answers, so there is no risk in guessing if you don’t know the right answer to any particular question. Raw scores are converted to an LSAT scale that ranges from 120 to 180, with 120 being the lowest possible score and 180 being the highest possible score.
