LSAT - India goes online for the first time ever

Bar & Bench

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC), creator of the LSAT—India, will hold 2020 LSAT—India online for the first time ever.

The test is being conducted online to provide a secure and timely testing opportunity for candidates despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Candidates seeking admission to law schools in the country will be able to take the LSAT—India starting the week of June 14, using an online test delivery system with artificial intelligence-assisted remote proctoring to ensure the integrity and validity of the test.

LSAT 2020 was earlier postponed to June 7 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on families and communities everywhere, and our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected. We have heard from so many students across India that want to pursue their legal education so they can make a difference in their communities, so we are pleased that we can offer this secure online testing solution to help support Indian students and law schools during this difficult time. The online LSAT—India will be composed of genuine LSAT—India questions that have been developed and tested in accordance with our strict standards and processes, and will provide a fair and rigorous opportunity for candidates to demonstrate their skills and continue their legal education journeys.”

Kellye Testy, LSAC President & CEO

LSAC will implement a rigorous data forensics programme to ensure the integrity of the remotely proctored test. The remotely proctored online LSAT—India will require candidates to complete a virtual check-in process, which includes enhanced identification and authentication procedures.

After successful identity validation, the candidate will be approved to take the test using a secured browser. Every candidate’s test will be proctored remotely using AI-assisted technology and the candidate's entire examination will be recorded via the computer’s web camera. If misconduct of any kind is detected, then the exam will be invalidated.

Applicants can continue to register for the June LSAT—India by visiting discoverlaw.in/register-for-the-test. After the closure of registration period, candidates will receive scheduling details and instructions on how to take the online test to ensure a seamless experience. LSAC will provide additional information about the online LSAT—India in the weeks ahead.

Applicants can prepare for the test using the material that is free to download from the Discover Law website (discoverlaw.in/prepare-for-the-test).

LSAT—India is one of the leading entrance tests for undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes in India. Please visit DiscoverLaw.in for a complete list of law schools that accept LSAT—India scores as one of their key admissions criteria.
