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 to evaluate an applicant’s credentials. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) administers the test several times per year. 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. Currently, all applicants are required to have at least a 142 LSAT to be considered for admissions into the school. To be considered during the current admissions cycle, you must take the LSAT on or before the March administration date, and your score must be 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 submit your application, you must provide the new test date on your application to place a hold on the review of your application until the new score is received. North Carolina Central University School of Law will use your highest LSAT score in the review of your application and supporting materials.
