The Pros and Khans of LSAC’s Free LSAT Prep

Back on June 1st, Khan Academy announced, with much fanfare and at least as many emojis, that its free LSAT prep course was live. This course was announced way back in 2017 in partnership with the Law School Admission Council. LSAC instituted many measures to make the LSAT more student-friendly and accessible throughout 2017 and 2018, but in many ways, this was its pièce de résistance — an entirely free online prep program. One that could, theoretically, narrow the gap between affluent pre-lawyers who are able to afford private tutors and commercial test prep and those who cannot.

Finally, Our Infallible Expert* Makes His Unimpeachable Predictions for the June LSAT

The June LSAT is coming up Monday, so it’s time for our favorite every-few-months ritual: predicting what will be on the LSAT. The usual disclaimer applies — we don’t have any insider knowledge about what’s going to be on Monday’s test. Even if we did, we’d remain silent lest a team of LSAC secret agents show up at our offices with a thirst for vengeance. So, uh, anyway, what follows is a guess. Nothing more, nothing less.
