The Law School Admission Council has announced an expanded LSAT schedule, offering prospective law students six testing dates per year as opposed to the traditional four.

The changes will take place in mid-2018 and are intended to provide a more flexible testing schedule to benefit prospective law students, who will have more options if they have a conflict with a particular test date, and law schools, whose application cycles have shifted in recent years.

Dean Susan Krinsky, chairwoman of LSAC’s board of trustees, said the additional dates are “an important part of LSAC’s continuing efforts to reduce barriers to entry into legal education.”
