The LSAT is converting to the new digital format. Schedule of roll out:

  • January 2019, March 2019,  June 2019 (last pencil-and-paper based examples)
  • July 2019 (half will be assigned paper and pencil). The LSAC will randomly assign students as either pencil or tablet.
  • September 2019 is 100%  digital.

Starting in July, college students will be able to take the law school entry exam on Microsoft Surface Go tablets. Here are some advantages:

  • Scores will be available in a matter of days, rather than weeks.
  • Accessibility and user features will be standard, such as the ability to increase type size, control brightness, highlight and underline text.
  • The 35-minute writing portion of the exam will be separated from the rest of the exam, allowing test takers to complete it on their own computers at their convenience.
  • Custom security technology will protect the integrity of the exam.
