The LSAT This Week

Welcome to The LSAT This Week! This is a weekly blog series providing information on all you need to know about the LSAT, including upcoming deadlines, how to prepare for the test, how to avoid having your session flagged, and more. Be sure to come back often to read the latest and greatest as you prepare for your test.

Scheduling for the April LSAT Closes April 12

Scheduling for the April 2023 LSAT will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 12. If you’re registered for the April LSAT, we recommend you schedule your test as soon as possible, as preferred time slots may fill up quickly. Check the email you received on March 30 for detailed instructions on how to schedule your test.

Additionally, LSAT Writing® opened on Thursday, April 6. All test takers must have a completed LSAT Writing sample on file in order to receive their score or have their score released to law schools. Given the large volume of test takers, we strongly encourage you to complete your LSAT Writing as soon as possible.

Test Taker Pro-Tips: LSAC's Electronics Policy

The #1 reason for cancelled test sessions is the presence of a prohibited electronic device. Don’t be that person! Pretend you live in a world with no electronic devices, like the 1980s. Leave your digital watches, fitness tracking devices, calculators, tablets (unless you’re using an LSAC-issued tablet), and any other electronic device in a different room. You don’t need them, and you can live without them for a couple of hours. Per the Candidate Agreement, you can have your cellphone in the room, but it must remain “face down, out of your arm’s reach, and at a distance and location where it is unable to capture any images on your computer screen.” The only time you can use your phone is to communicate with your proctor or with LSAC, and that’s only if there’s an issue with your test that cannot be resolved through the proctoring interface. Note that these rules are also in place during the multiple-choice test’s 10-minute intermission!

After you complete Section 4, remember that just because you hit “submit” and complete your multiple-choice test or LSAT Writing doesn’t mean you’re “done.” Only after you turn off your computer and leave the room can you go back to the multi-device, multi-tasking 21st century.

Upcoming LSAT Registration Deadlines

Registration for the June LSAT closes April 25. This is also the deadline for requesting accommodations for the June test. If you registered for the April LSAT and need to change from the April test to a future administration, you can do so until Thursday, April 13, at 11:59 p.m. ET, through your LSAC online account (fees may apply). You can learn more about test dates, deadlines, date changes, and score release dates on our website.
