The Law School Admission Test - LSAT is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers throughout the world. All American Bar Association-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many other law schools require applicants to take the LSAT as part of their admission process. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school: the reading and comprehension of complex texts with accuracy and insight; the organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it; the ability to think critically; and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others.

LSAT 2017 Pattern:-
The LSAT—India is a standardized test of reading and verbal reasoning skills designed by the USA-based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for use by law schools in India. The LSAT—India is patterned after the world-renowned LSAT®. It is developed by testing professionals with advanced degrees in psychometrics, English, linguistics, and logic. It is not created by ad hoc committees of faculty. The LSAT—India pattern rigorously follows prescribed specifications that are essentially the same every year. Each test question has been subjected to multiple levels of review and to a system of pretesting, so candidates can be assured that every question has one and only one correct answer.
The LSAT—India is meant to help anyone with good critical thinking skills. So, there are no questions designed to assess prior legal knowledge, no questions requiring mathematical knowledge and no questions on current affairs or grammar. The LSAT—India breaks critical thinking skills down into three main types: logical reasoning, analytical reasoning, and reading comprehension. Since the first of these types is most predictive of success in law school, there are two sections of logical reasoning questions in the LSAT—India. There is also one section each of analytical reasoning and reading comprehension questions, which contribute to the predictive validity of the test.
There is no negative marking or penalty for guessing. Only correct answers contribute to a candidate's score. Therefore, candidates should leave no question unanswered and guess on those questions they cannot carefully consider.
