The Law School Admissions Council captured attention from pre-laws and admissions counselors around the country this morning, issuing a press release concerning their ongoing disability lawsuit. However, buried toward the bottom of the release was the news that really shocked the law school world:
As part of its continuing efforts to make the Law School Admission Test an accurate barometer of the academic capability of future law students, the Law School Admissions Council will reduce the time limit for each section of the exam from thirty five (35) minutes to thirty (30) minutes, beginning with the next test administration.
That’s right. Beginning with the June LSAT, test-takers will only have 30 minutes for every section.
