Figuring Out the Law School Admission Test

The Law School Admission Test, or LSAT, is the national standardized law school exam. Law school exams are administered four times a year. The law school exam is required for admission to all American Bar Association approved law schools. The Law School Admission Test is administered by the Law School Admission Council.

This law school exam is designed to assess logical and verbal reasoning skills. Some version of the Law School Admission Test has existed in some form since 1948. There have been several different versions of these law school exams over the years. The modern version of the law school exam has remained relatively static since the early 1990s.

The Law School Admission Test has six sections. Four of the six sections on the law school exams are graded, while two sections on every law school exam are an un-scored experimental section and an un-scored writing section.

The median score earned on the Law School Admission Test is around one hundred fifty one. Scores on law school exams range from one hundred twenty and one hundred eighty.

When an applicant applies to a law school, exams taken in the previous five years are reported to the law schools which are being applied to.

As of 2010, the Law School Admission Test costs one hundred thirty six American dollars to take in the United States, and almost one hundred fifty Canadian dollars to take in Canada.
