LSAT Schedule

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.

LSAT Registration Deadline

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.

How Should I Register for the LSAT?

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.

When is it Best to Take the LSAT?

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.

How to Prepare for Your LSAT Test Date

You’ll want to spend a lot of time getting to know the test format, the types of questions that will be asked, and practicing the skills you’ll need to succeed on the exam. Some resources to help get you started include:

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

LSAT Test Date FAQs
