• About the LSAT

  • The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is designed specifically to assess key skills needed for success in law school, including reading comprehension, analytical reasoning, and logical reasoning. The LSAT is the only test accepted for admission purposes by all ABA-accredited law schools and Canadian common-law law schools.

    • Your scores are valid for five years
    • Cost: $200 per exam
    • Disclosed Exam: This type of exam tells you how you did in each section
    • Non-Disclosed Exam: This type of exam just gives you your overall score
    • Begining July 2019, the LSAT will be a digital exam, taken on Microsoft Surface Pro Tablets
    • Test-Taking Limit Policy
      • Starting with the September 2019 test administration, test takers will be permitted to take the LSAT:
        • Three times in a single testing year (the testing year goes from June 1 to May 31).
        • Five times within the current and five past testing years (the period in which LSAC reports scores to law schools).
        • A total of seven times over a lifetime.
        • This policy is forward-looking, not retroactive. Tests taken prior to September 2019 will not count against these numerical limits.

    Practice in all three levels

    Every question throughout skill practice is packed with goodness!
    The assigned difficulty level of the Analytical Reasoning setups and Reading Comp passages in the system was determined by averaging the difficulty levels of the questions in the group. This means that setups and passages in the “Basic” category contain some very difficult questions. If you see repeats in a level, then change it up—we promise it will be worth it!

    Take hints

    Every question in the skill practice area of the system has solution steps, which we also call Hints. Even if you got the question right, were you 100% confident? If not, then you could benefit from reading through the solution steps before moving on to more practice tasks.

    Read the explanations

    Every choice on every question has an explanation. Please consider taking the time to read through the explanations for why the answers are right and the wrong choices are wrong. The chances are good that you may learn something through more in-depth analysis, especially for those questions you aren’t 100% confident on.
     
    Pro tip: Carefully review every question you're not 100% confident about 
    You can review all the solution steps to each problem after you submit your answers—without negatively affecting your progress in the system. This is the most important part of your prep program; you should aim to spend about three times as much time reviewing your responses as you spend doing problem sets.

    PHIL 2040 - Practical Logic

    Politicians, bloggers, religious figures, parents, lovers, and teachers use arguments to try to convince us to do and believe certain things. This course is a systematic study of the principles of good reasoning that will enable students to assess the quality of reasons given by others, to develop quality arguments of their own, and even to perform better on tests such as the LSAT. We will cover translation from English into sentential logic, inferences within sentential and Aristotelian logic, and other argumentative forms. Reasoning skills are learned by actual practice, so a healthy percentage of class time will be devoted to actually working on developing these skills via an examination of philosophical arguments dealing with the nature of matter, souls, abstract objects, and more.

    This course is often taught in the Spring Quarter of the academic year.
