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

 

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

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

 

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) today announced the schedule for transitioning the LSAT—the assessment tool used by over 99% of all law school applicants—to a digital format beginning with the July 2019 LSAT test.

Discover Law at LSAC.org

September 11, 2018

On September 12, discovering law will be much easier. That’s when LSAC’s new, completely redesigned LSAC.org debuts. The new site will be easier and more intuitive to navigate for all users, with better presentation of streamlined content, less dense text and more photos and videos, and optimized usability on phones and other devices. And, the site will feature a new Discover Law page with all the information prospective students need to get started on their path to law.

You may have seen some social media posts or news articles implying that LSAC is associated with a test prep book that includes politically biased material. It is important for you to know that LSAC is not associated in any way with the Windham Press LSAT Prep Book that is mentioned in the original article. They do not license official LSAT content.

That type of question would never appear on an LSAT or on any of our preparatory materials because:

Aspiring Law School Students Can Now Receive a Personalized Study Plan for the LSAT with Official Practice Questions from the Maker of the Test, the Law School Admission Council.
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC), long recognized as a national leader for programs that promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, announced today the winners of its 2017 Diversity Writing Competition.
