LSAT Prep Course
Cornell's Stoll Program for Law and Society offers an on-campus comprehensive LSAT prep course for all students interested in taking the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The course runs from Block 4 through Block 8 and is timed to coincide with a summer or fall test date. Sessions are approximately two hours each and are designed to work with Cornell's block schedule. The timing of this course is well suited for juniors, or seniors who are planning to take a year or more off prior to law school.
The course focuses on the three scored sections of the LSAT: reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and analytical reasoning (also known as "logic games"). Students enrolled in the prep course also take three practice LSAT exams using recently released exams from LSAC.
The LSAT prep course is offered at a significantly reduced rate to Cornell students as part of the Stoll Program for Law and Society. Included in the $300 cost of the course are all of the textbook materials and the practice LSAT exams.
