Exam Description

Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

 

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) - India is an admission examination for admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate law courses administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). On behalf of the Law School Admission Council in the United States, Pearson VUE administers the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) (LSAC). Pearson VUE administers the LSAT India for admission to law programmes in Indian law schools. Based on the outcomes of the LSAT India 2021 and the scores obtained by the candidates, over 85 Indian law schools will compile a merit list for admission. The deadline for LSAT India 2021 registration has been extended from May 14 to May 17, 2021. The exam has been rescheduled for May 29, 2021, instead of June 14, 2021. The LSAT India application deadline was similarly pushed back from June 4, 2021, to May 14, 2021, and has now been extended until May 17. Candidates who want to take part in the LSAT India registration procedure must create an account, validate their e-mail address, and complete the application form before the deadline. Only those aspirants who meet the conducting body's eligibility criteria are allowed to participate.

The exam took place on March 25, 2021, and the results were announced on April 9, 2021.
