More Information About the LSAT

The LSAT is an integral part of the law school admission process in the United States. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.

Through June 2023, the LSAT is administered in an online, live remote-proctored format. The multiple-choice test has four 35-minute test sections, three of whch are scored: Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, and Logical Reasoning. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, is typically used to pretest new test questions or to pre-equate new test forms, and can be any one of the three standard section types. The placement of this section will vary. Identification of the unscored section is not available until you receive your score report. There is a 10-minute break between the 2nd and 3rd sections of the test. 

There are three multiple-choice question types in the LSAT:

  • Reading comprehension questions measure the ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law school.
  • Analytical reasoning questions measure the ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure.
  • Logical reasoning questions assess the ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language.

The current online format of the LSAT requires users to have access to the internet, a computer with administrative rights, a webcam, and a quite place to take the exam. A more thorough list of required materials and ways to prepare are available on the LSAT website. LSAC also provides assistance to test takers who do not have access to the required materials; learn more at https://www.lsac.org/lsat/frequently-asked-questions-about-lsat.  

To help provide test takers with the tools and content to prepare effectively and confidently for the Digital LSAT, LSAT offers Official LSAT Prep℠, which provides candidates with two free full practice tests in the authentic Digital LSAT test environment.

LSAT Writing

LSAT Writing is a separate online 35-minute writing exam that you must complete on your own time before you sit for the LSAT. It is administered using secure proctoring software that is installed on the candidate’s own computer, with access opening 8 days prior to the candidate's test date. The structure is designed to elicit the kind of argumentative writing that candidates will be expected to produce in law school. Practice exams include LSAT Writing prompts for you to practice.
