The Law School Admission Test, or LSAT, is a standardized, multiple-choice exam consisting of five 35-minute sections. These sections include multiple-choice questions on reading comprehension, analytical reasoning and logical reasoning skills. The test is scored on a scale of 120-180. Only four out of the five sections are scored (although you do not know during the test which four sections are scored).

 

In addition, the test administers a writing sample that does not contribute to your score on the 120-180 scale.

 

Your LSAT score is a major determining factor in whether you get accepted into law school and which schools accept you. It is not advisable to take the LSAT for practice. Instead, you should complete your preparation and practice before you attempt the official LSAT. Law schools have varying policies on how they view multiple attempts at the LSAT.

 

The LSAT is administered seven times a year in 2019. For official test dates, registration, location of test centers and additional information, visit https://www.lsac.org/lsat/lsat-dates-deadlines-score-release-dates.

Important Changes to the LSAT in 2019

Traditionally a paper-and-pencil exam, the LSAT is going to be digital in North America as of September 2019.

 

Half of test-takers for the July LSAT and all test-takers for the September LSAT will be given a Microsoft Surface Go tablet, a device known for its smaller size and adjustable kickstand, which positions the screen how the user wants. The digital LSAT exam provides a timer with a five-minute warning, text higlighting capabilities, and the ability to flag questions that you want to revisit within a section. The tablet also provides accessibility features.

 

A private Wi-Fi will feed the LSAT questions to the tablets from a hub. The questions within each section will be the same for all test-takers.

 

LSAC will provide scratch paper and a pen for test-takers to use during the test.

Starting with the June 2019 LSAT exam, the essay writing section will be administered on a secure online platform. Test-takers can type their essays (instead of writing by hand) where and when they want as of the date of the LSAT and up to one year thereafter. Repeat LSAT test-takers do not have to repeat the essay.

 

To ensure that the essay writer is not receiving improper assistance, the writer must complete a check-in process. The writer must display an ID to the computer's web camera, and show that the workspace is clear of electronic items. Both sides of any scratch paper must be shown. No other people may be in the room. The software will automatically close any messaging, word-processing, or web-browsing applications and prevent such applications from being opened during the essay writing time.

 

The writer will be recorded via webcam and microphone, as well as everything that happens on the screen. Audio and video from every writing session will be reviewed by proctors, and retained for later review in case of a misconduct investigation.
