Taking the LSAT in China

    LSAT International Locations | LSAT Prep

    Taking the LSAT in ChinaThe LSAT is taken by students planning to attend law schools in the US and Canada, but the test is administered across the globe, as the LSAT continues to spread internationally. (Read this blog post we wrote about the LSAT
    abroad.)

    In China, the LSAT is offered in four separate locations: 

    • Beijing, Beijing Foreign Studies University

    • Guangzhou, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies 

    • Kowloon, Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority San Po Kong Office

    • Shanghai, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics 

    At the Kowloon location, all four administrations of the LSAT are offered. At the remaining three locations, only the June and December administrations are offered. A complete list of test dates and deadlines can be found here

    For the most updated information about taking the LSAT in China or if you have any questions, refer to LSAC for more information.   

    Testing center locations are subject to change. You should refer to your LSAC.org account for the most current information regarding open test centers. It is also  advised that international students register for the LSAT as soon as possible, as testing center space is limited. Students can register online through their LSAC.org account or by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001. Walk-in registration on the day of the test is not allowed. 
     
    Unlike the US, 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 China, 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 coursesOn Demand LSAT coursesself-study using LSAT preparation books like the LSAT Bibles, and online LSAT tutoring.
