About the LSAT
The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is a half-day long standardized test which is given four times a year in test centers throughout the world. All American Bar Association approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many other law schools throughout the world require candidates to take the LSAT as part of the admissions procedure. The test enables law schools to see candidates’ standard of reading and verbal abilities which can be used as criteria for selection of candidates.
In the US, Canada, the Caribbean, and some other countries, the LSAT is offered on Saturdays, other than in July when it is offered on Monday. For Sabbath observant candidates, the test is also offered on a weekday during the week after the Saturday test.
Most law schools require their candidates to take the LSAT by December in order to be accepted for the following fall, but it is advisable to take the test in the earlier September or June test dates.
Some law schools put a bigger emphasis on the LSAT than others, but most schools evaluate all the candidate’s credentials together.
