The LSAT is taken by students planning to attend law schools across the US and Canada, but the test is administered globally, as the LSAT continues to spread internationally. (Check out this blog post we wrote about the LSAT abroad.)
In Japan, the LSAT is offered in two locations.
It is offered all four test administrations (February, June, September/October, and December) in Tokyo, at Temple University Japan Campus.
You can also take the LSAT in Kyoto at Doshisha Law School; however, only the September/October exam is offered at that location.
For the most current information about taking the LSAT in Japan, or if you have any questions, refer to LSAC for more information.
It is advised that international students register for the LSAT as early as possible, as testing center space is limited. A complete list of test dates and deadlines can be found here. Students can register online through their LSAC.org account or by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001.
It’s important to note that all international LSAT administrations are nondisclosed, meaning that students will only receive access to their LSAT score, score band, percentile rank, and writing sample. The text of the LSAT and LSAT answers are not included in the score reports.
In Japan, the use of the LSAT is a relatively new phenomenon, and therefore there are not many on-the-ground LSAT preparation options there. However, there are still many high-quality LSAT preparation options available to LSAT takers in Japan, 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.
