Important Notice: LSAT Logic Games are Going Away in 2024!
  • Beginning with the August 2024 test, the Analytical Reasoning (“Logic Games”) section of the test will be eliminated. The LSAT will then consist of two Logical Reasoning (“Arguments”) sections, one Reading Comprehension section, and one unscored section.

  • Up until the June 2024 test, the LSAT will continue to include one Analytical Reasoning section, one Logical Reasoning section, one Reading Comprehension section, and the unscored section.

The test will have three scored sections — one section each of Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension — and a fourth, unscored variable section that will allow LSAC to validate new test questions for future use. LSAT Writing is administered separately online and can be taken as early as eight (8) days before your multiple-choice test date. Remote administration of LSAT Writing will continue for all test takers.
