Course Overview
Looking to study enter law school? But not sure which tests to take?
Law admissions tests are specifically designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school: the reading and comprehension of complex texts with accuracy and insight, the organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it. Besides that, the tests also evaluate candidates’ ability to think critically and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others. In this section, we will cover the major admissions tests required for entry to law schools globally.
There are TWO main tests that law schools use to evaluate applicants:
The LNAT is an admissions aptitude test required by applicants (international and local) to nine UK and two non-UK leading universities. Applicants are typically using the test to enter undergraduate law programs (LLB).
The LSAT is an admissions test required for entry to graduate law schools offering the JD program mainly in the US and Canada.
