Can You Take the LSAT Test Online?

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, LSAC currently allows students to take the test online. The live, online, proctored version of the LSAT offers a 10-minute break between the second and third sessions. Students can take the online version of the test through June 2022.

The traditional version of the LSAT includes three scored sections and a fourth unscored section. LSAC eliminated the unscored version during the height of the pandemic but added it back in August 2021.

Students can sign up for LSAT test dates on LSAC's website.
