James Aníbal Lorié is the director of assessment development at LSAC. He earned his BA in philosophy from Yale University and his MA in English from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Lorié has worked in test development at LSAC for over 20 years. He spearheaded the development of the most recent significant change to the content of the LSAT — the introduction of comparative reading into the reading comprehension section. One of Lorié’s recent projects was overseeing the development of the Spanish version of the LSAT, which is now offered in Puerto Rico.
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) has evolved over the years, but it has remained the gold standard in legal education since it was introduced over 70 years ago. Accepted by every law school in the country, over 100,000 people take it every year, and 99.6% of the people who entered law school last year used the LSAT in their applications.
