Starting with the June 2019 LSAT administration, the writing section will be separate from the LSAT and administered on a secure online platform. 

This change will result in greater convenience and flexibility for test takers as:

  • the testing date will be shorter
  • the essay will be typed rather than handwritten
  • the essay can be completed at a time and place of the test takers’ choosing. 

By registering for the June or July LSAT, candidates will be automatically eligible to complete the writing section as of the date of the LSAT and up to one year thereafter. 

Candidates are only required to have one essay on file to complete their Law School Reports. 

Essays completed during previous LSAT administrations will still be valid for use in Law School Reports.
