The LSAT This Week

Welcome to The LSAT This Week! This is a weekly blog series with 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.

Upcoming LSAT Deadlines

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 opened on Thursday, June 1. Given the large volume of test takers, we strongly encourage you to complete your LSAT Writing as soon as possible. Remember that if you have an LSAT Writing sample from a previous LSAT administration, you do not need to submit a new writing sample.

Score preview: LSAC offers a Score Preview option for test takers who wish to see their LSAT score before deciding whether to keep it and have it reported to law schools or, alternatively, cancel the score. Test takers who purchase the Score Preview option will receive their scores at the same time as other test takers (assuming they have completed their LSAT Writing and have no holds on their accounts) and will have six (6) calendar days to decide if they want to cancel or keep their score.

For the June 2023 LSAT, Score Preview will be available for $75 beginning Saturday, June 17 through Monday, June 26 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

August 2023 LSAT: The registration deadline for the August LSAT is Thursday, June 29. This is also the deadline for accommodation requests.

Registration for the 2023-2024 Testing Cycle is now open!

Registration for the 2023-2024 testing cycle is now open. Test takers have the option to register for any LSAT administration through June 2024. Furthermore, starting in August, most test takers will have the option of taking their LSAT at home in the currently online, remotely proctored format or in person at a professional testing center.

When registering, test takers will be asked to state their preference of whether to test at home or at a test center. Regardless of your choice, you will not make your decision final until after scheduling opens for the administration you’re registering for. For more information, please visit our website to view the testing dates and learn more about testing at a test center or testing remotely.

Test Taker Pro-Tip of the Week: 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, 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.
