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.
