LSAT Test: Writing Sample

LSAT Writing Sample Details

The writing sample, which is always administered at the end of the test, is 35 minutes long. All LSAT writing samples must be in response to a given prompt. The prompts will either require you to argue in favor one of two possible choices or to analyze the logical flaws in an argument. No particular essay structure is required, but there are preferred formats. No score is assigned to the writing sample, but as the writing sample is your application cover sheet as submitted by LSAC, it is essential to write a well-planned, cohesive essay.
