The Remote LSAT

The Live, Remotely Proctored LSAT Option

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, LSAC moved quickly to offer the live, remotely proctored LSAT. This allowed for more than 100,000 law school aspirants to continue their legal education journeys. Since May 2020, LSAT takers have expressed their preference to keep the live, remotely proctored test as an option. Through Prometric, LSAC will continue to offer the LSAT in a live, remotely proctored format for the 2023-2024 testing year.

Registration for the August 2023 through June 2024 administrations is now open. Most test takers can choose whether to test in person or remotely — whichever option works best for them.
