LSAT

Law School Admissions Test

Let The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Test Prep take the mystery out of the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT®). The LSAT® is a half-day, paper-based standardized exam that is required for admission to all American Bar Association-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools and many non-ABA-approved law schools.

Our intensive LSAT® prep program includes 30 hours of classroom instruction from experienced exam preparation professionals. The easy-to-follow program uses proven techniques to simplify the LSAT®, as well as questions from actual LSAT® exams, so that you know your preparation is as close to the real thing as possible. LSAT® textbooks, study guides, diagnostic exams and expert instruction are all included.

What is the LSAT?

The LSAT® provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions and a 35-minute writing sample.

The LSAT® is administered four times per year. Many law schools require that the LSAT® be taken by December for admission the following fall. UTC’s LSAT® Test Prep courses are scheduled precisely to make sure students reach exam day performing at their peak. 

Who should take the UTC LSAT® Test Prep class?

All ABA-certified law schools require a valid LSAT® score as part of the admissions process. This course is ideal for current undergraduates, recent graduates and anyone looking to apply to law school. We recommend that students take the LSAT® Test Prep class as close to their chosen exam date as possible.
