The L&S LSAT Preparation Workshop

Download the UW LSAT Prep Course Application 

Introduction:
This course is a supplement to home preparation. You will still have to do much on your own [as you should with any preparation course], and a major goal of the workshop is to help you do that effectively. Enrollment capped at 35, so plan ahead! In addition, we need to have a minimum enrollment of 15—so it is not guaranteed that all sessions will go forward. Notice of upcoming courses and registration appears on the pre-law website. Our email address is: cae@saa.ls.wisc.edu

Basics:
The course will consist of ten sessions, meeting either in the evenings or on weekends, and usually in the law school. Some instructors hold more meetings that are shorter in length, but the total in-class time is always 22 hours. The present cost is $200.00; texts can be purchased on the web. The course is not given for credit. Scholarships based on financial need, maybe available dependent on enrollment. Classes will be held at the UW Law School, room 3250-Appellate Courtroom.

Registration:
Registration is in-person only, on a first-come first-served basis, and application must be turned in to Jalanda Gibonéy. Unfortunately, I cannot take registrations by telephone, fax, or email.

Course structure:
There are three types of scored sections on the exam. The more difficult sections (for most people) are discussed in the beginning sessions. This is to give students more time to polish these skills and ask questions throughout the course. Test prep sessions are outlined below:
