Test-related questions

LNAT or National Admission test for Law was developed by a consortium of UK universities as a fair way to assess  a candidate’s potential to study law at undergraduate level, regardless of their education or personal background.

The LNAT is a 2¼ hour test in two sections.

Section A consists of 42 multiple choice questions. The questions are based on 12 argumentative passages, with 3 or 4 multiple choice questions on each. Candidates are given 95 minutes to answer all of the questions.  

Candidates can review their answers at any time during the 95 minutes, but cannot return to the multiple choice section once they begin Section B.

Section B, candidates have 40 minutes to answer one of three essay questions on a range of subjects and demonstrate their ability to argue economically to a conclusion with a good command of written English.

Prior to sitting the LNAT, all candidates must complete the two step registration process using the Pearson VUE online registration system. Once your online account registration is complete and you have created an LNAT Profile, you will receive an email with details enabling you to book and pay for the test.

The fees are determined by the test centre location. It is GBP 50 at UK/EU test centres and 70 GBP at test centres outside the EU.

The test fee is payable online, at the time of booking a test, by major credit card (Visa, MC, Amex, JCB) or debit card (Visa only).

The fee is always charged in GBP (pounds sterling). If you have a non-UK credit card, your credit card company will bill you according to its own rules for foreign transactions.

If you are applying to study undergraduate law at the LNAT-participating universities you should aim to take the test as early in the academic year as possible for maximum choice of test venue and availability, and to meet admissions deadlines.

The LNAT must be taken in the UCAS year in which you are applying to university.

There is no fixed date on which the LNAT is held. Registration for and booking of LNAT tests for entry into university in September 2014 opens on 1 August 2013. Testing starts on 1 September 2013. For more information on current test dates, see LNAT Timescales and deadlines.

LNAT results are emailed to candidates twice a year (typically in February and July), with test dates determining the results date.


Following completion of the test, Pearson VUE will supply the candidate’s LNAT score and essay directly to those LNAT-participating universities which the candidate chooses (ticks) when registering for the LNAT.  The universities get the results in good time for their applications process and before the results are sent to the candidates. 

You may only sit the test once in the cycle, and results cannot be carried over from one year to the next. You are advised to consult the individual university’s websites to check these deadlines.

The LNAT must be taken by all applicants (UK, EU and overseas) to UK undergraduate law programmes at

The following non-UK universities also rely on the LNAT under certain conditions. Please check with the universities directly for details.

As well as taking the LNAT, you need to apply for your chosen programmes in the normal way. Sitting the LNAT does not constitute an application to any universities.

Candidates should not take the LNAT if applying to study law at non-LNAT-participating universities as they cannot access LNAT scores.
