York Building

LSAT_2_Feature-image-for-webStudents in their third or fourth year of study who are interested in law school can now take advantage of a free Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation course offered by Osgoode Hall Law School. Osgoode is offering the free LSAT preparation to help high-potential students with financial need.

Students will gain free, comprehensive LSAT preparation, including study materials, practice tests and online support. In addition, students will have the opportunity to get the inside scoop on life at law school and in the legal profession through discussions, panels and roundtables with current law students and legal professionals.

Topics will cover the law school admissions process, financing a legal education, how to maintain balance while in law school and the variety of career options for law school graduates.

The course will run two nights per week from June 1 to Aug. 28. The Tuesday night class will be three hours and the Thursday night class will be two hours. Additional refresher sessions will be offered in September, prior to the Oct. 3 test. Attendance will be taken weekly and students must agree to attend at least 90 per cent of the classes.

The course will be held in the Ignat Kaneff Building, Osgoode Hall Law School, on York University’s Keele campus.
