UIS Pre-Law Center offers preparation for LSAT

The Pre-Law Center at the University of Illinois at Springfield will offer an LSAT Primer Program -- designed for UIS students and others planning to take the Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT) -- from Friday, September 19, through Sunday, September 21, in room 3B of the Public Affairs Center on the UIS campus.

Sessions for the three-day program will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Presented primarily for UIS students but open to others on a space-available basis, the program will be particularly helpful to those planning to apply to law school within the next two years.

Cost is $190. Advance registration is due by Wednesday, September 17.

"The primary purpose of this course is to provide affordable LSAT preparation to students who will eventually apply to law school," said Pre-Law Center Director Dennis Rendleman. "In addition, it gives students the confidence to know they can succeed on the LSAT."

Rendleman noted that the course includes two LSAT exams administered under simulated conditions; instructional sessions in each section of the exam; test-taking strategies and hints for better performance; and personal strategies and writing tips.

The program is presented with support from UIS' Institute for Legal, Legislative, and Policy Studies.
