Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is required of every applicant to law school, and students are strongly encouraged to take a preparation course. Do not take the LSAT for practice. It is recommended that this test be taken in June before the senior year. Interested students should see the Pre-Law adviser for an application timeline and advice concerning the LSAT and the personal essay. Students apply directly to the Law School Admission Council (www.lsac.org), which offers practice materials online and administers the test at five convenient Philadelphia locations. All students interested in legal careers should contact the Pre-Law adviser early in their University program. The adviser works with students to develop a program suitable to their interests, including legal fields such as corporate, international, criminal, family, healthcare and the environment.
