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) administers the test six times per year, typically in January, March, June, July, September 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. This test must be taken on or before the March test administration date and must have been taken within five (5) years of October 1st of the academic year for which you seek admission. If you plan to take the LSAT after you have submitted your application, you must indicate the future test date in order to prevent your application from being reviewed until the new score is received.

North Carolina Central University School of Law will use an applicant’s highest LSAT score in the review of an applicant’s file.  Currently, no applicant with an LSAT score of 141 or lower will be admitted into the Law School.
