American Bar Association-accredited law schools, such as the University of Chicago Law School or Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law, require applicants to take the LSAT. A Chicago LSAT prep course provided by Varsity Tutors can help you get ready for this important exam. The LSAT, or Law School Admissions Test, is designed to test students on the skills that they will utilize in law school. Given the range of argument and analysis skills involved, knowing how to begin preparing can be a challenge to many potential law school students. The LSAT is a key part of the application process, so you'll want to be sure you have a clear idea of what the test covers, your own strengths and weaknesses, and how to study to be as ready as you can be on the day of the test.

The test is broken up into four sections, three of which you will take at the test center, as well as a Writing section that you will complete online. The LSAT is your opportunity to demonstrate your skills in reasoning and argument to law school admissions boards, and the skills you can develop to succeed on the test will continue to be valuable should you be admitted. A Chicago LSAT course can provide you with direction in your preparation, whether you've already begun studying and are looking for extra feedback and guidance, or are looking for a way to kick-start your test prep.

What will be covered on the LSAT?

The LSAT's four sections are as follows: Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Writing. The first three of these will be taken in the testing facility and are multiple-choice test sections. These sections are delivered using digital tablets, which will be provided to you at the testing facility. The last section, the Writing section, you will complete online through a testing platform. Altogether, the test will take you slightly less than three hours. Let's take a more in-depth look at the material these sections cover, and what you can expect to review in a Chicago LSAT class.

First, the Reading Comprehension section. In this section, you'll be required to read and parse long, complicated passages, which are meant to replicate the sorts of texts that you'll be required to read and understand in law school. You'll then be asked questions about the passages, asking you to understand both explicit and implicit information, use context clues to determine the meaning of words and phrases, analyze the structure of passages, comment on the author's own position based on the text, transpose arguments or information in one passage to a new context, and other similar tasks. You'll be given 35 minutes to tackle this section.

Second, the Analytical Reasoning section. Here you'll be asked to demonstrate your abilities to use structural logic, by analyzing relationships within a set of structures and drawing conclusions based on these relationships. You'll answer questions that will challenge you to determine the outcomes of problems given a certain structure, to infer what could or must be true given certain statements or rules, to use conditional statements to reach conclusions, and to make logical equivalences between statements based on context. You'll have 35 minutes to answer the questions in this section.

The third section you will encounter will be the Logical Reasoning section. Here you'll be presented with arguments from a variety of sources, such as newspapers, advertisements, or scholarly articles. You'll be asked to break down these arguments into their component parts, see patterns in arguments and point out similarities and differences, use analogies to draw conclusions, recognize misunderstandings or assumptions, point out the explanations that these arguments use, and discover flaws in the arguments that these sources make. This section is broken into two 35-minute parts, for a total of 70 minutes spent on Logical Reasoning.

Last, the Writing section. This section is not scored; instead, your writing sample will be included in your application, and law schools will have the opportunity to see your ability to make your own arguments in writing. You'll be able to choose between two decisions and defend your position. Law schools will be reading for your reasoning skills and for your ability to write a clear, well-organized, well-worded, and mechanically correct piece of work. You'll be provided with 35 minutes to write your essay.

How can a Chicago LSAT course help me prepare?

The courses offered by Varsity Tutors are held in an online classroom environment, which function just like an in-person class would: you'll see, hear, and speak with your classmates and teachers. An online, group class offers a variety of advantages. These classes are led by qualified, expert instructors, and you will be able to reserve one-on-one time with your instructor to spend extra time on subjects that you might struggle with, but a group setting allows for collaboration with other students as well. This type of group learning environment has been shown to improve students' ability to understand and retain material. You can talk through and break down complicated logical structures with your classmates to help you prepare for the Analytical Reasoning section, for example, or discuss practice arguments with classmates to get ready for the Logical Reasoning section.

Additionally, an online class has a definite convenience factor. We recognize that many potential law students have very full schedules, whether you're finishing up undergrad or a professional returning to school or making a career shift. An online Chicago LSAT course means an easy commute. You'll also be able to pick the course time that best suits your needs. Courses are held in 2-week and 4-week sessions, and new sessions start every week on a rolling basis for maximum flexibility. The course has been designed to be highly accessible, allowing you to easily and effectively seek success on the LSAT.
