The Law School Admission Test is a half-day standardized test used by most law schools as part of their admission criteria. Unlike the SAT or ACT, the LSAT does not test knowledge in a particular subject area. Rather, the LSAT uses common language and broad topics to measure the following skills:

  • Reading and comprehension of complex texts with accuracy and insights
  • Organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from what has been presented
  • Critical-thinking skills
  • Analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others
