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. 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 is available for $75 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.

Test Taker Pro-Tip of the Week: Accommodations

LSAC is committed to providing necessary testing accommodations for the LSAT® and LSAT Writing® to candidates with documented disabilities. Accommodation policies and guidelines apply to both remote and in-person testing. 

Registered test takers can submit accommodation requests through their LSAC online accounts. Requests are due by the accommodation request deadline associated with your test. In most cases, candidates must submit documentation in support of their request for testing accommodations. Requirements vary based on several factors. Learn more about documentation requirements.

If you have submitted an accommodation request for an upcoming or future administration of the LSAT, please be aware that we are reviewing requests as quickly as possible. If you are registered for a future administration, there may be a delay in the review of your request due to pending deadlines for upcoming administrations. If you have an immediate need, please call Accommodated Testing at 855.384.2253 and a customer relationship specialist will be happy to assist you. For more information, please visit the Testing Accommodations page on our website.
