RALEIGH – One of the more daunting hurdles for prospective law school applicants is mastering the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Campbell Law School will offer two free practice LSAT exams to interested participants on Saturday, Sept. 9 and Saturday, Nov. 25. Both practice exams will begin at 10 a.m. Registration is required, and prospective students may do so easily at this clickable link.
Campbell Law previously offered a practice LSAT exam this past Jan. 21 with more than 100 prospective students taking advantage of the opportunity.
“Although admission at Campbell Law is a holistic process, an applicant’s LSAT is arguably the most important aspect of their application,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “This is because it not only offers our faculty a snapshot into an applicant’s ability to succeed and thrive within our curriculum, but because it factors heavily into scholarships and awards.
“We offer this free, no obligation practice exam as a good faith opportunity for any and all prospective students that want to try their hand at the LSAT, gauge their performance and do their due diligence before deciding to move forward with the law school application process.”
The LSAT is an integral part of the law school admissions process, providing 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. Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker’s score. These sections include one Reading Comprehension section, one Analytical Reasoning section, and two Logical Reasoning sections. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, typically is used to pretest new test questions or forms. The placement of this section will vary. Identification of the unscored section is not available until you receive your score report. A 35-minute, unscored writing sample is administered at the end of the test. Copies of your writing sample are sent to all law schools to which you apply.
Test and writing scores from Campbell Law’s practice exam will not be shared, distributed or utilized in any admissions process. The practice exam is entirely meant to serve as an opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of the exam and gauge their preparedness.
The test will be administered by Kaplan Test Prep and participants should budget four hours for the process. For any additional questions contact the Campbell Law admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.865.5988.
