If you're a prospective law student, you'll almost certainly be required to take the LSAT, and Richmond LSAT prep courses provided by Varsity Tutors can be an excellent way to get yourself on track for success on the test. The LSAT, or Law School Admissions Test, is required by almost all American Bar Association-accredited law schools, including the T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. The depth and range of knowledge you'll have to show on the LSAT can make preparing for the test an intimidating challenge, but a Richmond LSAT course can provide direction that can allow you to aim for an excellent score on the exam.

Law students come from all walks of life, and whether you're an undergraduate looking to go straight into law school, or a professional returning to higher education, we know that you more than likely have a busy professional and personal life. For this reason, a Richmond LSAT class is taught in an online classroom, which allows for more flexibility in scheduling and removes the need for a commute. You can attend group discussions with your classmates and instructor from wherever you prefer to study. You might be looking for a class that you can attend during your lunch hour, a late-night course, or something on the weekends; in any case, there can be a class to suit your needs. Classes are offered in 2-week and 4-week segments, and new classes begin every week, so you've got flexibility in how you choose to sign up, too.

What kind of material will a Richmond LSAT course cover?

You'll take the LSAT at a testing facility, where you'll be provided with a digital tablet that you'll use to answer questions on the test. These tablets have some extra features too, like timers that you can use to keep track of your pace and highlighting tools. The first three sections of the test, Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, and Logical Reasoning, are all multiple-choice sections and will be taken at the test center. The last section, Writing, you'll take online through a testing website. Let's take a deeper look at what you'll be facing come test day, and what skills a Richmond LSAT course can help you come to grips with.

The Reading Comprehension section is intended to gauge how adept you are at understanding long, difficult passages similar to the texts you'll be expected to engage with in law school. You'll answer questions regarding the primary argument of the text, explicit and inferred information, how context affects the meaning of words and phrases, how information can be transposed to new contexts, authorial voice and intent, the structure of these texts, and how new information might affect arguments made by these passages. You'll have 35 minutes to finish this section.

For the Analytical Reasoning section, you'll be asked to understand a set of rules, how they relate to each other, and the structures created by these relationships. You'll have to follow these structures to determine the complete outcome of problems posed, and understand logical equivalences and conditional statements. For example, you'll be given a set of facts and rules and will be asked what, given this set of information, could be true, could not be true, or must be true, and other questions of this nature. You'll have 35 minutes to complete Analytical Reasoning.

The Logical Reasoning section will provide you with a variety of reading material from everyday sources like newspapers, advertisements, magazines, and scholarly articles. You'll be asked to critically evaluate the arguments presented by these sources. To do well here you must be able to point out the various structural pieces of an argument and how they relate to each other, support your conclusions and critiques, and point out misunderstandings, flaws, and disagreements in arguments. This section is broken into two 35-minute segments, so you'll spend a total of 70 minutes on Logical Reasoning.

Last up is the Writing section. You'll be given a decision problem: faced with two courses of action or two positions, you must pick one and defend your decision. This section will not affect your score, and there is no "correct" answer. Instead, schools are looking for your ability to craft a well-reasoned, well-organized, eloquent and elegant essay that shows off your talents as an argumentative writer. The essay you create for the LSAT will serve as a writing sample that will be read by the admissions boards of all the schools you apply to.

What will a Richmond LSAT course do to help me prepare?

A Richmond LSAT prep course is taught by an experienced, rigorously interviewed teacher in an online classroom. This classroom will bring you into conversation with other prospective law students in group discussions that will be led by your instructor. Collaborative learning environments like this have been shown to help students absorb new information, and also improve long-term retention. Plus, you might be able to imagine how useful a discussion-based course can be for a test like the LSAT, which will score you on your ability to construct and break down arguments. Going over test sections with others can really bring home the argument and analysis skills that you'll need to do well on the LSAT.

Additionally, these classes can provide you with a great value by getting you connected with a highly qualified teacher at a group price. You'll still be able to get one-on-one time with your instructor too: a Richmond LSAT class allows you to reserve extra time that you'll spend in private review with your teacher so that you can catch up on any sections that you might not be feeling confident about. This prep class has been deliberately planned out so as to give you many opportunities to get the support you might need, so you can strive to reach the limits of your potential on the LSAT.
