LSAT Syllabus

LSAT Logic Games Syllabus

Logic Games are designed to measure your ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw conclusions from it. You will be asked to make deductions from a set of statements, rules, or conditions that describe relationships among entities such as persons, places things or events. These questions simulate the kinds of detailed analyses of relationships that law students must perform in solving legal problems.

LSAT Logical Reasoning Syllabus

The logical reasoning test evaluates the ability to isolate and identify the various components of any given argument. Each of the two scored Logical Reasoning sections consists of twenty-four to twenty-six questions based on short passages called "stimuli." Each stimulus takes the form of an argument-a conclusion based on evidence. You will need to understand the stimulus to answer the questions based on it. Common types of questions include weakening, strengthening, assumption, main point, inference, and parallel logic. Each is designed to test your ability to understand, analyze, evaluate, and manipulate arguments.

LSAT Reading Comprehension Syllabus

The Reading Comprehension section consists of four passages, each about 450 words long with five to eight corresponding questions. These long excerpts of scholarly passages are reminiscent of the kind of prose found in law texts. The topics are chosen from the areas of social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and the law. Types of questions include identifying the main idea, detail, inference, logic, and extrapolation. The questions are designed to test your ability to read dense, scholarly material and ascertain the structure, purpose, and logic.

LSAT Experimental Section

The experimental section allows Law Services to test questions for use on future tests. This unscored section generally looks exactly like one of the others, so just do as well as you can on every section, and you'll be covered for this section as well.

LSAT Writing Sample Section

A scenario is given followed by two possible courses of action. You will have 35 minutes to make a written case that one is superior. The section doesn't require any outside knowledge. It's primarily designed to judge your ability to write a clear, persuasive argument.
