If you're planning to attend law school in the US or Canada, then you must take the LSAT. But if you're abroad, the test is also administered globally. (For more information, read this blog post we wrote about taking the LSAT abroad.)
For students in Scotland, the exam is offered in St. Andrews at the University of St. Andrews. There is only one time you can take the LSAT there: the September/October administration. The other three LSAT administrations are not offered in Scotland.
If you're taking the LSAT in Scotland, make sure you register for the test a wee bit early, as testing center space is limited. You can register online by going to your LSAC.org account or by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001.
For the most updated information about taking the LSAT internationally, or if you have any questions, refer to LSAC for more information. A complete list of test dates and deadlines can be found here.
In Scotland, the use of the LSAT is still fairly new, and because of this there are not many on-the-ground LSAT preparation options there. However, there are still many high-quality LSAT preparation choices available to LSAT takers in Scotland, including PowerScore's Live Online LSAT courses, On Demand LSAT courses, self-study using LSAT preparation books like the LSAT Bibles, and online LSAT tutoring. Guid Luck!
