The Law National Aptitude Test is used as part of the selection process for Law School. It is managed by LNAT Consortium Ltd and is ministered by Pearson Vue.

About LNAT The assessment will evaluate your lateral thinking capabilities as well as verbal and logic skills. It is two hours and a quarter long and divided into two sections; multiple-choice questions and an essay.

The LNAT It does not require you to have legal knowledge but instead looks at key aptitudes that are relevant and required to study and practice law. These aptitudes include:

LNAT Verbal reasoning Tests (advanced) Making logical inferences and deductions Distinguishing between fact, opinion and speculation Determining what is relevant and what is not Identifying strong and weak arguments

Below we have provided more information about the two sections of the LNAT:

The first section will present you with 12 paragraphs of information. You will be asked 3-4 subsequent questions relating to each paragraph (totalling 42 questions overall). Like all verbal reasoning tests, your answer must be solely based on the information provided, and not external knowledge.

Each question only has one answer and there is a total of 42 points available in this particular section. Wrong answers will not deduct points from your overall score. You will never be expected to guess or speculate the answer, all of the necessary information will be provided to you in order for you to decide the correct answer.

The second section will invite you to write an essay based on a choice of three topics provided to you. You will be given 40 minutes to complete your essay and it will be evaluated to see how well you are able to put forward an argument. Each of your statements must be supported with strong reasons, demonstrating logic as opposed to real facts. Make sure you do not contradict yourself at any point within your essay, as this will weaken your argument. Fluid communication and language precision is key in this exercise.

You are expected to produce around 500-600 words within the given timeframe, and to not exceed 750 words. A word counter will be provided on screen to help you.

Your LNAT scores are only valid for a year. If you take it and decide to apply to Law School a year later, you will need to repeat the exam. It is important for you to know that your essay will not be marked by LNAT, but by the universities to which you have applied. Do make sure you check each universities individual cut-off dates for these applications as they vary.

The following universities use LNAT:

University of Birmingham University of Bristol Durham University University of Glasgow Kings College London University of Nottingham University of Oxford SOAS University of London UCL Faculty of Law Maynooth University IE University
