Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a standardized test required for admission to the School of Law. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that the Admissions Committee uses as one of several factors in evaluating applicants’ credentials. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) typically administers the test nine times per year, January, February, March, April, June, July, September, October and November. Future LSAT dates and deadlines are available on the LSAC website.

All applicants must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). There are no exceptions. Please note that applicants with an LSAT score of 141 or lower will not be admitted to the law school. This test must be taken on or before the April test administration date and taken within five (5) years of October 1st of the academic year for which the applicant seeks admission. If the LSAT is taken after the applicants submits the application, the applicant must provide the new test date to prevent your application from being reviewed, and the score is received. North Carolina Central University School of Law will use an applicants’ highest LSAT score in the review of applicants; file.
