LSAT- India (LAW School Admission Test)

LSAT-India is a standardized test of reading and verbal reasoning skills designed by the USA-based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for use by law schools in India.

The LSAT-India is a test of reasoning and reading skills, not a test to see whether you happened to have memorized the right facts or equations. The theory behind the LSAT-India is democratic and inclusive. It holds that students acquire critical thinking skills over their educational lifetimes, and that these skills are the most important for the study of law. Good critical thinking skills may be acquired in virtually any educational program anywhere so long as it is rigorous and of high quality. Thus, no training in any specific field or set of fields is required to do well on the LSAT-India. The test rewards candidates with generalized abilities adaptable to a variety of circumstances.

LSAT Students Testimonials

Arka Banerjee Choudhury, LSAT student, Law Entrance
Arka Banerjee Choudhury

Of all the law-school entrance tests that I have appeared for, LSAT-India 2015 was definitely the most systematic one. Unlike the other tests that encourage rote memorization, LSAT-India was based solely on reasoning abilities and was thus a true test of aptitude.

Andre Jaggi, LSAT student, Law Entrance
Andre Jaggi

The LSAT - India examination is a test of your Logical Reasoning and English abilities - and therefore requires the most amount of endurance during the examination. The preparation for LSAT - India is not as complicated because there aren't as much variety as far as sections go, but the actual test is more arduous than CLAT or NLU - Delhi because of the sheer standard of the aptitude required.
