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 information you’ll need to know as you prepare for your test.
The April LSAT Is Winding Down
The April LSAT administration got under way on Friday, April 14 with more than 14,000 registrants scheduled to test. Everything is on schedule for the May 3, 2023, score release date.
Don’t forget that to receive a score or to have your score sent to the law schools to which you applied, you must have a completed and approved LSAT Writing® sample on file. LSAT Writing opened on Thursday, April 6, and it is available on demand, 24/7.
Given the large volume of test takers, we strongly encourage you to complete your LSAT Writing as soon as possible to avoid any delays in getting your score.
Upcoming Deadlines for the June LSAT
Registration: The deadline to register for the June administration of the LSAT is Tuesday, April 25 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The June administration will start on June 9.
Scheduling: Scheduling for the June LSAT will start at 12 noon ET on Thursday, May 25. At that time, all June LSAT registrants will receive an email communication with instructions on how to schedule their test and the scheduling window available to them.
LSAT Writing: 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. LSAT Writing for the June LSAT will open on Thursday, June 1. Given the large volume of test takers, we strongly encourage you to complete your LSAT Writing as soon as it becomes available.
Remember that if you have an LSAT Writing sample from a previous LSAT administration, you do not need to submit a new writing sample.
Test Taker Pro-Tip of the Week: LSAT Writing
As you get ready to do your LSAT Writing, keep in mind that scratch paper is not permitted for this part of the test. Other than that, the same rules which govern the LSAT apply for LSAT Writing. For a comprehensive list of all prohibited items, please see the LSAC Candidate Agreement. The use, or detection, of any of these items may result in the cancellation of your LSAT Writing session.
Like the multiple-choice LSAT, LSAT Writing is administered online through LSAC LawHub®. The writing portion of the exam can be taken on-demand and is administered online using secure proctoring software that you’ll install on your computer.
To get better acquainted with LSAT Writing, we encourage you to do an LSAT Writing practice prompt available through your LawHub account, and visit the Frequently Asked Questions section of our website.
