The LSAT is administered in two parts. The first part consists of several 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. The second part of the LSAT consists of a 35-minute, unscored LSAT Writing sample.
For remotely proctored LSAT-Flex administrations, there are three test sections — one reading comprehension, one analytical reasoning, and one logical reasoning.
LSAT Writing is administered online using secure proctoring software that you can install on your own computer. You can take LSAT Writing at your convenience, as early as eight (8) days prior to the date of your multiple-choice exam. Your LSAT Writing prompt will present a decision problem, and you will be asked to choose between two positions or courses of action and defend your choice. There are no “right” or “wrong” positions; the writing sample is designed to let you demonstrate your persuasive writing skills. Law schools are looking at the reasoning, clarity, organization, language usage, and writing mechanics you display in your sample. Copies of your writing sample are sent to all schools to which you apply.
