LSAT Format

The LSAT exam is offered digitally multiple times per year. It is a multiple-choice exam
delivered on easy-to-use tablets instead of booklets. The tablets are provided to test takers at the test center on which test takers will review exam questions and tap/select their answer choice. The tablet offers a timer with a five-minute warning, highlighting, and flagging to keep track of questions that a test taker may want to revisit in a section.



LSAT Sections

Reading Comprehension

This section will test your ability to identify the purpose and structure of a passage or passages, define main ideas, or evaluate arguments and conclusions. There will be 4 reading passages with 5-8 questions for each passages.

Logical Reasoning

This section contains short, argumentative texts and questions that will test your ability to understand, analyze, manipulate and evaluate arguments and draw conclusions. Each LSAT includes 2 scored sections with 24-26 questions in each question.

Logic Games

You will solve problems with many pieces of data simultaneously that incorporate basic logic, systems of order, and outcomes. There will be 4 sets of data with 5-7 questions per set.

Experimental
LSAC uses this section to normalize new questions for future LSATs. This section will either be another Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, or Reading Comprehension section. You will not be able to tell which section is experimental and ungraded.

LSAT Writing
LSAT Writing is a proctored, on-demand writing exam that is administered online using secure proctoring software that is installed on the candidate’s own computer. The writing structure is specifically designed to elicit the kind of argumentative writing that candidates will be expected to produce in law school. Candidates will still be given 35 minutes to write an essay in response to the prompt that is presented to them.
