Update to LSAT preparation materials available on LawHub

Updated LSAT preparation materials are now available in LSAC’s LawHub. These materials are designed to support test takers planning to take the LSAT during the 2024-2025 testing cycle, which begins with the August 2024 administration.

Starting with the August 2024 administration, the Analytical Reasoning section, commonly known as “logic games,” will no longer be included in the LSAT and will be replaced by a second scored Logical Reasoning section. Thus, starting with the August 2024 test, the LSAT will consist of two scored Logical Reasoning sections, one scored Reading Comprehension section, and one unscored variable section of either LR or RC.

To help meet the needs of all test takers, LSAC is now providing two sets of practice tests via LawHub – one set that reflects the existing test format that will be used through the current testing year ending with the June 2024 administration, and a second set that reflects the new test format that will be used starting with the August 2024 test and beyond. The primary difference between the two sets of test prep materials is the format of the overall practice test, not the content of the LR or RC practice questions.

LSAC will also be adding to LawHub a range of test prep videos, explanatory articles, and sample problem sets; these resources will start becoming available on LawHub for free by mid-March.
