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. 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 June or October—is often advised.
Almost all ABA-approved law schools 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 and LSAC registration at: LSAC
The registration fee for the LSAT is $136. Late registrants must pay an additional $68.
