The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is required by most American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools. A growing minority of ABA approved programs accept either the LSAT or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).


Many applicants will opt to take the LSAT or GRE during the spring or summer a year before they plan to attend law school. However, each candidate’s holistic preparation and timing of taking the LSAT is different, so it is important that you consider your study strategies and personal obligations, as well as application cycles when determining when to take your exam.

Preparation Information

  • What is on the LSAT?

    The LSAT consists of: 

    • Logical Reasoning
    • Reading Comprehension
    • Analytical Reasoning 
    • Unscored variable section

    The LSAT also requires a 35-minute unscored writing sample that will be sent with your LSAT results when you apply to law school. This is taken separate from the LSAT and required only once, even if you take multiple LSAT exams.

    We do not endorse any particular provider, but recommend you review primary sources first (sources published or suggested by the Law School Admissions Council - LSAC)

    As the LSAT tests your ability to read critically, analyze and apply information to the task at hand there is no one best way to study. We recommend considering your study preferences and then evaluating your test prep options. We are happy to visit with you about how you might identify the style of preparation that best fit your needs.
