News to Know about LSAT Offerings for 2023-24

The Law School Admissions Council has announced:

Starting with the August 2023 Law School Admission Test (LSAT), test takers will have the choice of whether to take the test in the current online live-remote-proctored format, or in person at a digital testing center

Regardless of whether students choose to take the LSAT remotely or at a test center, the format and content of the test will remain exactly the same. 

Test takers will still have the option to schedule their test for the time which best suits their schedule. For most administrations, students will be able to choose whether to take it on a Friday or Saturday. In addition, the next testing cycle will also enable international test takers and test takers with approved accommodations for a paper-and-pencil format to test on the main testing dates.

And, regardless of whether a test taker chooses to test online or at a digital testing center, LSAC will continue to provide a wide range of accommodations for test takers with documented needs.

Dates for the 2023-2024 testing cycle are available on the website. Registration for the 2023-2024 testing cycle will open in mid-May. Should a student wish to change the mode they initially selected when registering for the test, they will have the opportunity to do so without incurring any fees, as long as the change is made by the established deadlines on   

As always, Penn students and alumni are welcome to schedule an appointment via Handshake to meet with a pre-law advisor to determine the right testing mode for them.
