The required test for admission to most law schools is going electronic. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) announced recently that in January 2019 the exam will be completely administered via electronic tablet. This change is remarkable given the LSAT’s long history of testing by paper.
LSAC contends that test-takers will be able to receive their results more quickly and minimize the need for paper and pencils (among other resources). In addition, LSAC will increase the number of times per year that applicants can take the exam – from six to nine. The exam itself will remain unchanged, still focusing on logic, analogies, and reading comprehension
For future practitioners, this change should streamline the often agonizing process of taking the exam and the wait time for receiving its results. Those unfamiliar with using tablets regularly should plan on practicing to prevent disadvantages on test day.
