Breaking news: Digital LSAT and schedule changes in 2019

Breaking news from the LSAC: The LSAT is transitioning to digital in 2019. Today the LSAC issued a press release about their plans to transition from a paper & pencil LSAT format to a tablet-based digital format.

For the July 2019 LSAT, some test takers will be assigned the (current) paper & pencil format while others will be assigned to the tablet-based digital format.

Every subsequent LSAT (September 2019 and beyond) will only be offered on the tablet-based digital platform. 

Remaining paper & pencil LSAT exams are:

Saturday, November 17, 2018 (Registration is open until Monday, Oct. 8 here)
Saturday, January 26, 2019 (Registration is currently open here)
Saturday, March 30, 2019 (Registration will open in December)
Monday, June 3, 2019 (Registration will open in December or later)

If it is important to you to take the paper & pencil format, then we strongly advise registering early for one of these LSATs in order to guarantee your spot.
