The first step to a career in law is passing the entrance test for law school. Knowing how to take the test can put you on that path more efficiently by preparing you to achieve the best score possible.
The OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies will host an LSAT Prep Course Aug. 7-Sept. 10 at the OU College of Law, 300 W Timberdell Rd. on OU’s Norman campus. The course is designed to prepare students for the upcoming Sept. 16 test date, or those needing to retake the test.
Students will learn the methodology behind taking the test, including how to recognize patterns of reasoning and how to develop a pacing plan for answering questions, said Ren Freeman, course planner and manager.
“OU’s LSAT Prep Course provides its students with a customized approach to reviewing and learning information valuable in preparation for the LSAT,” said Freeman. “One approach is through the creation of a guided, yet personalized, study plan that reflects baseline information that enables a way to focus on specific areas of improvement.”
Past students claim the class has helped them identify their strengths and weaknesses, given them an opportunity to get a better score on the LSAT and provided them with advice and information about law school and the application process.
“Our course goes beyond what is practical in preparation for an exam such as the LSAT, as it also includes discussions about test day preparation and strategies as well as information to better understand the Law School application process for additional knowledge leverage,” Freeman said. “When students engage our process of preparation, they have seen their goals met and an increase in their overall practice test scores.”
Classes will meet Aug. 7-20 from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, and Aug. 22-Sept. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The Sunday classes will include tests and reviews to prepare students for the test.
The course fee is $825. Materials will run an additional $200 to $250 and may be purchased on Amazon or other locations.
