Fee FAQs

If I’ve already taken the LSAT and want to take it again, what would it cost?

The cost of the LSAT is the same for both first-time and repeat test takers. For the 2020-2021 testing year, which ends in April 2021, LSAT registration costs $200.

If I choose to retake the LSAT, would I get to take LSAT Writing again for free?

If you have already completed an LSAT writing sample, you do not need to complete LSAT Writing again. However, if you would like to retake LSAT Writing as well, please contact LSAC’s Candidate Services team at LSACinfo@LSAC.org or 215.968.1001.

For your LSAT to be considered complete, you only need one (or more) writing sample(s) on file — either from an earlier paper-and-pencil administration of the LSAT or from LSAT Writing. Beginning with the August 2020 LSAT-Flex, you must have a completed writing sample on file in order to see your score or have your score released to law schools.

Can I still purchase a CAS/LSAT package?

During the 2019-2020 testing year, LSAC provided the option to purchase an LSAT registration, use of LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service, and a set number of Law School Reports together as a bundle for a small discount. Due to limited interest, these package options have been discontinued.

Can I purchase LSAT Writing as a standalone?

No, we are no longer offering standalone LSAT Writing. For questions, please contact LSAC’s Candidate Services team at LSACinfo@LSAC.org or 215.968.1001.
