Law School Admission Council (LSAC) administers the Law School Admission Test-LSAT which is a half-day, standardized test that attempts to measure logical and verbal reasoning skills. It is administered four times a year at designated centers throughout the world. It is required for admission to all American Bar Association approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and some other law schools as well. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission. However, taking the test earlier in June or September is often advised.The LSAT helps law schools make sound admission decisions by providing a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker's score.
