“As one of more than 35 organizations dedicated to advancing diversity in higher education who filed an amicus brief in this case, the Law School Admission Council applauds today’s decision. This ruling upholds the careful and appropriate balance that the Courts have forged over four decades, allowing colleges and universities to consider race and ethnicity as one part of a comprehensive admission policy.

The Law School Admission Council announced that its July 15 administration of the first-ever digital version of the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) was generally very successful, opening an exciting new chapter in LSAC’s history with help from the organization’s technology partners at Microsoft and its dedicated test center staff.

Every other year, LSAC surveys its member law schools to update information of importance to LGBTQ applicants. This information helps applicants gauge the LGBTQ climates of prospective law schools, providing another way to determine if a law school is the right fit for them. Nearly 100 law schools in the United States and Canada responded to the 2018 LGBTQ Law School Survey, which asked schools to answer the following questions:

Digital LSAT will utilize Microsoft Surface Go tablets, starting July 2019

LSAC also working with Microsoft on a wide range of projects to use data and digital technology to improve access, efficiency, and affordability of legal education

 

Please note: The ability for test takers to see their scores before choosing whether to cancel was unique to the July 2019 test, given the transition from paper and pencil to a digital test format.


Transition to digital testing will begin with the July 2019 test; the LSAT will be fully digital in North America starting September 2019.

The LSAT will be offered 9 times in the 2019-2020 test cycle to expand candidate access and choice.
