Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is an integral part of law school admission in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries. The test helps law schools make sound admission decisions by assessing critical reading, analytical reasoning, logical reasoning, and persuasive writing skills — key skills needed for success in law school. The LSAT is the only standardized test accepted by all ABA-accredited law schools in the United States.
No matter which law school is your dream institution, the LSAT can help you get there. And it helps identify candidates who might be overlooked on the basis of undergraduate GPA or other factors. Research consistently shows the LSAT is the best single predictor of law school success. When combined with undergraduate GPA, an LSAT score provides the strongest prediction of success in law school — and becomes an invaluable component of a holistic admission process.
You can register for the next LSAT online through your LSAC online account – https://www.lsac.orgStudents should check law school websites to see the latest LSAT exam that will be accepted for the current year’s application process.
Currently in the United Arab Emirates, only two locations offer the LSAT: Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Testing Center and AMIDEAST. The Abu Dhabi Testing Center administers the test twice a year in September/October and December. AMIDEAST administers the LSAT in June. Please note testing center locations are subject to change. Refer to LSAC for the most up-to-date information.
International students should register for the LSAT as soon as possible, as testing center space is limited.
