The LSAT is taken by students wishing to attend law schools throughout the US and Canada, but the test is administered across the globe, as the LSAT continues to spread internationally. (We wrote this blog post about the LSAT moving abroad.)
In Nigeria, the LSAT is offered in only one location, The Educational Advising Center (Lagos). It is also only offered once per year in June. A complete list of test dates and deadlines can be found here.
LSAC advises that international students register for the LSAT as early as possible, as testing center space is limited. Students can register online via their LSAC.org account or by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001.
You should refer to your LSAC.org account for the most up-to-date information regarding open test centers. For the most current information about taking the LSAT in Nigeria, or if you have any questions, refer to LSAC for more information.
Keep in mind 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. Students don’t get a copy of the LSAT questions, answer sheet, the correct answers, or the score conversion sheet.
In Nigeria, the use of the LSAT is a relatively new phenomenon, and as such there are no on-the-ground LSAT preparation options. However, there are still many high-quality LSAT preparation options available to LSAT takers there, 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.
