MOSCOW, Idaho – Students applying to law school in and outside of the state of Idaho can prepare themselves for the demanding Law School Admission Test (LSAT) with University of Idaho LSAT Prep Courses, to be offered in Boise and Moscow.
Registration for the courses is open now. Cost is $375.
Boise classes are offered Aug. 18 through Sept. 12 at University of Idaho Boise, 322 E. Front Street. Classes will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m., and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m.
Moscow courses are offered Saturdays, Aug. 22 through Sept. 12, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. in the Menard Law Building, 711 Rayburn (south of the intersection of Sixth and Rayburn streets) on the University of Idaho Moscow campus.
The LSAT measures skills that are considered essential for law school, including reading and comprehension of complex texts, the ability to draw reasonable inferences, think critically, and analyze and evaluate the reasoning and arguments of others. The LSAT prep course is designed to allow students to exercise and strengthen those skills.
The exam is required for admission to all American Bar Association-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools and many non-ABA-approved law schools, providing a standard measure of reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.
Class size is limited. Cancellations received after Aug. 7 will be subject to a $50 fee. Course costs do not include the registration fee to take the LSAT. Register online at https://marketplace.uidaho.edu
