The LSAT schedule varies year-by-year but follows the same general flow. You can expect to find various test dates throughout the year, with November being the last month with a test being offered.

One unique thing about the LSAT schedule is that the test is given on one weekend of the month. There are usually multiple dates on that weekend which are offered, which is great for individuals who have busy schedules.

Review the image below for a visual breakdown of the LSAT schedule.

 LSAT Schedule 2023


The LSAT registration deadline is different for every LSAT date. With that being said, the deadline typically falls a little more than a month in advance of the actual test date.

You will want to schedule your test date earlier than the LSAT registration deadline if possible. This will ensure you get a spot and will allow you the necessary time to study and prepare properly for this grueling exam.

You can review the specific LSAT registration deadlines in the table above.

LSAT registration requires that you sign up at least one month prior to the LSAT test date. Registration can be done online with your LSAC account or over the phone at (215) 968-1001.

The LSAT has made a shift to offering the exam mostly online. However, if you cannot take the exam online, accommodations can be made to take the exam at a testing center.

Most law schools require that applicants take the LSAT by December if they plan on enrolling in the following fall. 

However, it's best to schedule your LSAT date earlier. This allows you some room for error in case you need to take the exam again to raise your score.

Another thing to consider is any application deadlines for your particular law school. Law schools have different deadlines, so it is important to keep those in mind when scheduling your LSAT test date.

The LSAT schedule is relatively flexible with different months and dates offered, you should be able to find something that fits into your schedule.

Plan to spend 200–300 hours on LSAT prep over 2-3 months. That’s about 20–25 hours per week.
