Law School Admissions Test

While it is not the only factor considered, law schools rely heavily on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) in the admissions process. The test evaluates reading comprehension, critical-reasoning ability, and logical analysis. Luther is a recognized test center and offers the test in June, October, December, and February. Most students take the test either in June following their junior year or in October of the senior year. Because the test does not include substantive sections, there are no particular courses that students need to take in preparation for the test.

For additional information about preparation for the study of law at Luther, contact John Moeller (, Professor of Political Science.
