The LSAT - Law School Admission Test

Are you ready to start your law school journey?

Studies have consistently shown the LSAT to be the single best predictor of first-year law school performance, even better than undergraduate grade-point average. An integral part of law school admission, the LSAT is also the only test that helps prospective law students determine if law school is right for them. Prospective law students who want to maximize their chances for admission and be best prepared for law school are encouraged to take the LSAT.
