QUESTION OF THE MONTH


Why does the LSAT still exist? I mean, every lawyer I talk to says that once you get past the LSAT you never use it again. So what is the point?

Every lawyer that you may have spoken with may have told you that, but (1) that is not unexpected and (2) they are incorrect.


FACT: ninety percent of all lawyers did not graduate in the top ten percent of their graduating classes. They are the ones who say dumb things like, “You never use LSAT skills in or after law school.” If you want to be a mediocre and struggling ambulance chaser, adopt their attitude.


The LSAT is testing lawyering skills in a non-law format. Law schools want to know whether or not you can identify the reasoning patterns in arguments, identify logically necessary missing premises, spot reasoning errors, draw logically valid conclusions etc. It is ALL the stuff of everyday lawyering when you are a very good lawyer. That is the difference. Most students have mediocre skills going into law school. Most of them do not understand the fundamental skills and how they apply to the study and practice of law. The LSAT tests skills you must use every day for the rest of your life if you want to be a highly successful attorney. Anybody who tells you otherwise is incorrect.
