Prepping for Law School, Preparing for the LSAT

Friday, July 6 2012


BOISE, Idaho – Anyone interested in applying to law school can prepare for the demanding Law School Admission Test (LSAT) prep course by enrolling in a preparatory course sponsored by the University of Idaho College of Law.

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.

Twenty-four hours of live class instruction will be offered in Boise using Cambridge Educational Services ® course for three and a half weeks starting Aug. 20. The classes will occur on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting at 6 p.m. and lasting between two and three hours. Register online at: http://marketplace.uidaho.edu. Classes will be held at the University of Idaho-Boise, 322 E. Front St.

Cost for the course is $600. Cancellations received after Aug. 1 will be subject to a $50 fee. Course costs do not include the registration fee to take the LSAT.

An online course will also be available this year – the cost is $445 for a four month session.

For more information on the LSAT Prep Courses, contact Elaine Kempton at (208) 364-4074 or ekempton@uidaho.edu.
