Critical thinking skills are essential for success, not only to get into law school, but also for practicing in the legal profession. Major law entrance examinations, such as the LSAT—IndiaTM, CLAT, SLAT, and AILET, are designed to assess these skills, which include critical reasoning, critical reading, and deductive reasoning skills. LSAC LawPrepsm offers first-time and repeat test takers the means to practise these skills at their own pace.
- Critical reasoning includes the ability to recognise arguments and their conclusions, what makes an argument flawed, what would make an argument stronger or weaker, and what assumptions an argument requires.
- Critical reading requires the ability to understand dense, complex argumentative texts — understanding the structure of the passage, the main point, and key inferences the author is making.
- Deductive reasoning involves being able to reason from rules to deduce what must or can be the case, given a set of facts.
Practise, Practise, Practise
These skills are not developed and improved by memorising facts. The only way to improve is to intensively practise the skills, and the best way to do that is to study using authentic law entrance practice tests — specifically focusing on the critical thinking sections. With LSAC LawPrepsm, you have access to an extensive library of PrepTests on an online platform. These practice exams have been developed by LSAC based on its 70 years of experience assessing critical thinking and understanding the needs of law schools.
You can take the PrepTests available via LSAC LawPrepsm under timed conditions and will have five attempts at each PrepTest. You will receive a raw score (number of questions answered correctly) immediately upon submitting a PrepTest. You can review your work to understand your strengths and weaknesses and assess where you need to improve, thus supercharging your readiness for test day.

A special note about the LSAT—IndiaTM
Unlike the other major law entrance tests, the LSAT—IndiaTM exclusively assesses the critical thinking skills mentioned above. The other major law entrance tests also assess other things — for instance, general knowledge or mathematics. All of them have a very significant emphasis on critical thinking, but the LSAT—IndiaTM is the only entirely skills-based law entrance test in India.
