Optimizing your LSAT score is an important step to successfully moving toward your degree in law and qualifying for academic scholarships. Regent Law wants to help you succeed. Regent Law offers two LSAT Workshop sessions that focus on the three types of LSAT multiple-choice questions. Additional LSAT components include sessions on the LSAT writing section, legal ethics and education from a Christian perspective, and the process of applying to law school. Both sessions are required.

About the LSAT
The LSAT is composed of five 35-minute multiple-choice sections and one 30-minute writing section. The multiple choice sections include:
- One Reading Comprehension Section
- One Analytical Reasoning Section
- Two Logical Reasoning Sections
- One Experimental Section (Includes questions similar to those in one of the previously mentioned sections.)
The Logical Reasoning section of the LSAT tests your ability to deconstruct an argument. The Prep Workshop will focus on how to analyze a Logical Reasoning question and identify assumptions and/or fallacies in each argument presented. At the end of the sessions, you should be well-equipped to analyze and answer Logical Reasoning questions.
This section of the LSAT measures your ability to understand a system of relationships and reach conclusions about those relationships. The Prep Workshop will provide the study skills you need to attack the Analytical Reasoning section. You will learn how to recognize the three types of Logic Games and work through them efficiently.
The Reading Comprehension questions on the LSAT are designed to test your ability to understand complex passages and make connections between the different parts of those passages. The questions are aimed at testing your ability to “read between the lines,” as you will be required to do in reading legal cases. The Prep Workshop will focus on teaching the skills necessary to read critically and accurately under time pressure.

At the beginning of 2020, the world shifted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From March to May of 2020, in-person LSAT exams were constantly being rescheduled or canceled leaving both students and law schools in suspense until an adequate solution to satisfy admission requirements could be implemented. Students who had planned to take the LSAT during the spring of 2020 suddenly found themselves wondering if law school would even be a reality in the fall. LSAC and law schools across the country had to execute major transitions to stay in operation while also abiding by CDC guidelines and state/federal government regulations. To meet this need, LSAC adopted and launched the LSAT-Flex in May of 2020. This test has afforded students the opportunity to safely take an online version of the original LSAT exam required by most law schools for admission.
Given the expressed preferences of the substantial majority of test takers, LSAC announced that it will continue to provide the LSAT in an online, live remote-proctored format through June 2022. Starting in August 2021, LSAC will return to the pre-COVID practice of including an unscored variable section along with the three scored sections so that LSAC can validate new test questions for future use. The unscored section can appear in any order among the four sections of the test. With the addition of a fourth, unscored section, LSAC plans to include a short break between the second and third sections of the new LSAT starting August 2021, similar to the break mid-way through the traditional in-person LSAT that was used before the COVID-19 emergency.
Registration for the updated LSAT starting in August 2021 will be available in May 2021. There will be 8 LSAT administrations in the 2021-2022 testing cycle.
Q. What are the main differences between the LSAT-Flex and the LSAT?
A. The only difference between the LSAT-Flex and the LSAT starting in August 2021 are that the LSAT will have four sections and that there will be a short break between the second and third sections. The LSAT-Flex only has three sections all of which are scored and has no break. The updated LSAT starting in August will have four sections but only three of them will be scored.
Q. Should I wait to take the LSAT until it returns to an in-person format?
A. It depends on the timeframe you hope to start law school. LSAC is planning to use the online format starting in August 2021 for a minimum of 2-3 years, so it will be the new LSAT format that candidates and schools can rely on. If you are not planning to start until the fall of 2024 or later and perform better on in-person exams, you may have the opportunity to test in-person and can wait for such a test to become available, but do not count on this possibility. Although LSAC hopes to administer in-person tests by then, it is not guaranteed. You should be prepared to take the LSAT online if you are planning to apply for law school before the fall of 2024.
Q. Are the LSAT-Flex or the updated LSAT starting in August 2021 weighed differently than the traditional LSAT by Regent Law?
A. For Regent Law, any score received from an online format of the LSAT will be treated as equally legitimate to an in-person LSAT score. The test has been designed to replicate the normal LSAT in the admissions process with a few exceptions.
Q. Should I prepare differently for taking the LSAT online?
A. The LSAT-Flex and the updated LSAT starting in August 2021 will be scored the same since they have three scored sections. Because these online versions of the LSAT have only one logical reasoning section, this section will not weigh as much as it does on the traditional, in-person LSAT, which has two logical reasoning sections. Consequently, studying more for the logical reasoning section will not necessarily bolster your score, but those students who are more skilled in the logical reasoning section might see their score slightly decrease while those who typically perform better in the analytical reasoning and reading comprehension section may score slightly better. Students should consider the difference between their logical reasoning score and their score on the other two sections as they practice and prepare for test day.
