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. (Check out this blog post we wrote about the LSAT moving abroad.)
In the United Arab Emirates, the LSAT is offered in Abu Dhabi, at the Abu Dhabi Testing Center. The exam is offered twice per year there, in September/October and December.
Test takers looking to sit for the June exam will take the test in Abu Dhabi, at AMIDEAST.
You cannot take the Febraury exam in the United Arab Emirates. A complete list of LSAT dates and deadlines can be found here.
For the most current information about taking the LSAT in the United Arab Emirates, or if you have any questions, refer to LSAC for more information. Students can register online through their LSAC.org account or by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001
LSAC does state that some published centers may have been closed, so be sure to refer to your LSAC.org account for the most up-to-date information regarding open test centers.
Also worth noting is 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 the United Arab Emirates, the use of the LSAT is a relatively new phenomenon, and therefore there are not many 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.
