2018-2019 LSAT Test Dates

LSAT test dates

If you are registering for the LSAT in the United States, Canada, or overseas, you need to know the 2018-2019 LSAT test dates. The table lists the test dates, as well as when regular registration closes and score release dates where available.

2018-2019 LSAT Test Dates: North America

Most of the dates in the table are open to all applicants. However, LSAT test dates marked with a ** are for Sabbath observers only.

Those tests have been moved to a different day of the week for those unable to take the test on a Saturday for religious reasons. The LSAC, the organization that administers the test, has not released registration and score-release dates for all test dates as of March 2018. Those instances are noted as "TBA."

Registration and Testing Help

Before you register for a specific test date, familiarize yourself with important LSAT registration facts, including details like getting accommodations, testing under special circumstances, and test center locations. And, review LSAT test-taking tips to learn information about the test itself such as test sections and scoring. Then sharpen your skills with LSAT test practice, which will give you a quick LSAT quiz to test your mettle.

You can register to take the LSAT by contacting the LSAC by phone, via email, or through snail mail

Future Plans

The Princeton Review calls the LSAT "the dinosaur of graduate school admission exams (because) it’s still exclusively a paper-and-pencil test." So, you'll still need to bring your No. 2s to take the exam, at least through the end of 2018.

The Princeton Review also notes that the LSAC has started a pilot program, where volunteers take five 35-minute sections using a tablet. Participants do not receive LSAT scores, but they receive a $100 gift cards. PowerScore, a test-preparation service, says that the initial test took place in the spring of 2017, but the LSAC is still working on instituting tablet-based testing.

When computer testing is put in place, test takers will be able to take the exam on Andriod tablets, and some of the features on the test will include large text, high-contrast text, touch-and-hold delay, magnification gestures, color inversion, and color correction.

LSAC also lists "scratch paper" as being provided, so it seems the stylus may not be the sole means of notation, says PowerScore.
