Law School Admission Test
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to LSAC-member law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools.

The LSAT is 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; the ability to think critically; and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others.

The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions, in three different item types. Four of the five sections contribute to the test takerís score. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, typically is used to pretest new test questions or to preequate new test forms. The placement of this section will vary. A 35-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test. LSAC does not score the writing sample, but copies of the writing sample are sent to all law schools to which you apply.

The three multiple-choice question types in the LSAT are:

  • Reading Comprehension Questions
    Measure your ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law school work.

  • Analytical Reasoning Questions
    Are designed to measure your ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure.

  • Logical Reasoning Questions
    Are designed to evaluate your ability to understand, analyze, criticize, and complete a variety of arguments.

    Examinees planning to take the LSAT must obtain a copy of the Information Bulletin for more details. The Bulletins are FREE publications.
    To get a copy of the Information Bulletin or for further information please access or address to Educational Advising Center Moldova.

    The EAC Moldova also maintains a library where you can find preparation materials for LSAT.
