Embarking on a law career is the start of exciting things to come. Franz Kafka, a famous novelist of the 20th century,  said, A lawyer is a person who writes a 10,000-word document and calls it a brief. It is a lifelong journey of learning and wisdom, not to mention opening up abundant opportunities to showcase your natural flair, deliver justice, and work on diverse tasks. 

But before everything else, getting into a good law school is what you should focus on. The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) can be a great starting point for this. Here is a guide to the LSAT exam dates for 2023-24 and a little of everything else in between. 

About LSAT Examination 

The LSAT exam is one of the most reputed law school admission tests to gain admission into leading schools. You will be intrigued that it is the sole test all global law schools with ABA accreditation accept. 

The exam has two parts, with the first comprising four 35-minute sections containing multiple-choice questions. This part includes sections like Reading Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, and Analytical Reasoning, along with an additional unscored section. The second part is the LSAT Writing sample which is of 35 minutes.

The LSAT score depends on the number of correctly-answered questions, represented as the raw score. The weightage for all questions is the same. The raw score is then converted into the LSAT scale, generating the final score in the official report. The score scale is between 120 and 180.

How to Prepare for LSAT 

Preparing for the LSAT exam necessitates hard work on your part over a sustained duration. Here are a few tips that will stand you in good stead:

  • Choose additional resources smartly- You’ll find a list of official content licensees of the LSAC on its website. Many of them offer diverse courses and other resources for aspirants. LSAC also offers lists of official preparation books with guidance, explanations, and actual test questions. There are several eBook suggestions available too. 
  • Familiarize yourself with the examination interface- The remote-proctored live and online LSAT is administered via the LawHub of the LSAC. You should understand the interface by using the official tutorials and practice tests via the LawHub account. These practice tests simulate everything that you must check for on the day of the test. 
  • Practice makes you perfect- You’ll prepare better for the actual LSAT by taking earlier versions of the examination. You can start with free Official LSAT PrepTests that are provided in the LawHub account. You can also look for additional practice examinations. You may upgrade the account to get the Official LSAT Prep Plus which contains more than 75 additional and official LSAT sample tests.

Evaluate every question minutely, especially the ones that you miss out on, and find out what made you choose the wrong solution.
