LSAT Registration

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a standardized test conducted by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for aspiring law school candidates. It is an integral part of admission to law schools in the United States, Canada, and many more countries. It aims to assess skills required for the first year of law school. These include reading, comprehension, logical reasoning, and writing, which present the abilities of the candidates in addition to their GPA.

It is recommended that the candidate takes the test before the year of applying to prospective law schools, due to the following reasons:

Eligibility for Registering for LSAT

There is no special criterion for taking the LSAT. Anyone who wishes to pursue a law degree can take the test for admission into law schools.

How to Register for LSAT?

There are various ways through which one can apply for the LSAT: Along with the registration for the LSAT, the candidate should also register for the Credential Assembly Service (CAS). It is a service provided by the LSAC which organizes transcripts, law school reports, letters of recommendation, and any other information that the students might want to send to the law schools along with their LSAT score report. Many law schools require candidates to apply only through CAS.

3. Select a test center and the date
