The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all ABA- approved law schools, most Canadian law Schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools. It provides 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 is administered four times a year. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for ad- mission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier-in June or October-is often advised.
