What is the LNAT for?
The National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) was developed to help universities learn more about the skills and capabilities of the students applying for their undergraduate law places.
The LNAT’s questions fall into seven general categories: law, philosophy, politics, media, science, ethics and education. No prior knowledge of these subjects is required though having a general awareness of current affairs is recommended.
The LNAT is a 2 hour 15 min test in two sections.
· Section A consists of 42 multiple choice questions. The questions are based on 12 argumentative passages, with three or four multiple choice questions on each.
You are given 95 minutes to answer all of the questions.
· For Section B, you have 40 minutes to answer one of three essay questions on a range of subjects.
Verbal reasoning – the style of testing used by the LNAT – is a core skill for a career in law. As such, verbal reasoning tests are widely used within the law industry as part of many firms’ recruitment procedures. Many law students find that sitting the LNAT gives them a valuable first experience of sitting this style of test.
