LSAT Preparation Course for Low-Income Students
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a requirement for admission to most law schools. Details about the LSAT may be found at lsac.org. In addition, free official LSAT preparation is available through Khan Academy online.
Western Law is now offering a free LSAT Preparation course in the summer for low-income, high-potential undergraduate students, or those who have recently graduated, who intend to apply to law school in the near future. Western Law thanks the Law Foundation of Ontario and the Law School Admission Council for generously sponsoring this program. The program will be held from mid-June until the end of August two evenings per week at the Faculty of Law Building.
