What’s on the LSAT Logical Reasoning Section?

This section of the test provides short passages that you must read and then answer one or two questions about. These passages, or arguments, are taken from sources including:

  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Scholarly publications
  • Informal discourse
  • Advertisements

These mirror legal reasoning both in their complexity and types of arguments. The questions will test your ability to evaluate, analyze and complete these arguments. These skills are essential to law and legal analysis as a law student.

You will need to identify parts of arguments, deciding what is most important and how any evidence presented in the future may affect it. You will need to be able to use arguments as a persuasion tool and to resolve contrasting positions.

You will not be expected to have prior knowledge of certain terminology or the topics in the presented passages. Your job will be to understand and evaluate the reasoning found in them.
