The Law School Admissions Test (or LSAT for short) was a half-day standardized test administered for admissions purposes at common law schools on Earth.

FormatEdit

In the 20th century and the early 21st century, the test had six sections, only four of which were scored. These sections were the logic games, arguments (twice) and reading comprehension. There also existed an unscored, experimental section for testing new questions but the examinee doesn't know beforehand which section is experimental.

Finally, the test comprised an unscored writing question. The sections appear in a random order depending on the form the examinee happens to be awarded.

In the 25th century, however, the LSAT featured seven sections, and was administered as a computerized, multistage adaptative test. Logic games, arguments and reading comprehension both appeared twice, with an unscored writing section. An examinee that does better on the first go at a LG, argument or reading comprehension section, will get a correspondingly harder version on their second round. A reading comprehension section typically contained four legal briefs or fragments of laws. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Pledge of the Protester")

ScoringEdit

It was scored out of 180, where 120 was the lowest score achievable. Typically the 50th percentile is a 150.

A 166 was sufficient to be admitted at Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary and Washington University in St. Louis in the 25th century. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Wagon Train to the Stars")

A real-world test taker who scored a 166 or a 175 would score in the 93rd and 99.4th percentile respectively, and legal admissions in Star Trek: False Vacuum seem to mirror rather closely contemporary admissions standards at the time of writing, and, by some trick of fate, are nearly identical (or only slightly lower/higher than for 2015) 400 years later.

Administration datesEdit

In the 20th century and the early 21st century, students could take the LSAT at most three times in any given two-year period. In that era, the test was administered four times a year.

In the 25th century, however, the LSAT could be taken at any time, under the provisos that the students may not retake the LSAT less than 45 days after the previous administration and that the students may not take more than four LSATs in any given year. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Wagon Train to the Stars")
