LSAT Syllabus 2021: Important Topics
According to the LSAT 2021 syllabus, there are three important topics of LSAT 2021 such as reading comprehension, analytical reasoning and logical reasoning. Candidates can look through the details of each section here.
LSAT Syllabus for Reading Comprehension
This section measures a candidates ability to read, understand and give insights into passages. The questions asked in the passage will be related to the following characteristics.
The main idea or primary purpose
The organization or structure
Principles that function in the selection
Information that is explicitly stated
Analogies to claims or arguments in the selection
Information or ideas that can be inferred
The application of information in the selection to a new context
The impact of new information on claims or arguments in the selection
The meaning or purpose of words or phrases as used in the context
An author’s attitude as revealed in the tone of a passage or the language used
LSAT Syllabus for Analytical Reasoning: This section checks the ability to understand the structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions for those structures.
Analytical Reasoning questions test a range of reasoning skills which include
Recognizing when two statements are logically equivalent in context by identifying a condition or rule that could replace one of the original conditions while still resulting in the same possible outcomes
Reasoning with conditional (“if-then”) statements and recognizing logically equivalent formulations of such statements
Inferring what could be true or must be true from given facts and rules
Comprehending the basic structure of a set of relationships by determining a complete solution to the problem posed (for example, an acceptable seating arrangement of all six diplomats around a table)
Inferring what could be true or must be true from given facts and rules together with new information in the form of an additional or substitute fact or rule
LSAT Syllabus for Logical Reasoning: This section will assess a candidates ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language. The questions are designed to assess a wide range of skills involved in thinking critically, with an emphasis on skills that are central to legal reasoning such as
Recognizing the parts of an argument and their relationships
Reasoning by analogy
Recognizing similarities and differences between patterns of reasoning
Determining how additional evidence affects an argument
Identifying flaws in arguments
Recognizing misunderstandings or points of disagreement
Detecting assumptions made by particular arguments
Drawing well-supported conclusions
Identifying and applying principles or rules
Apart from the three topics another section that students need to answer is the Writing Sample. The writing sample is to evaluate a candidates general writing skills. This section helps candidates to put forward their argumentative skills through writing.
Candidates will be given a choice between two positions or course of action. Both the choices are defensible and the candidates will be given criteria and facts on which they can base their decision. Since there is no right and wrong in this the quality of each candidates response will be taken into account and not the choice they make. Candidates will be evaluated on their writing skills and not the basis of the side chosen by them to answer the question. The questions asked will usually be from a non-legal point of view.
Law School Admission Council conducts LSAT for the admissions to Law Schools in Canada, USA and a few other countries like the Caribbean, Middle East, Australia etc. As per LSAT test dates, the test is conducted four times in a year.

Hello there, aspirant.
If you want to study at one of the NLUs, you don't need to fill out several forms; instead, simply fill out the CLAT form and indicate your preference among the 21 NLUs that participate in the CLAT admission process.
If you want to attend NLU Delhi, you must fill out a separate application and take a separate entrance exam (AILET).
You must also complete out separate forms for universities that accept CLAT results other than NLUs.
If you have a specific question regarding some institutions, please provide the names of such colleges, and we will respond depending on your selection and enquiry.
I hope this helps!!
