Saint Vincent College is offering a Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparatory course designed to assist students who are preparing to take the examination in conjunction with their application to law school.
The course will focus on instruction in the areas of analytical reasoning, problem analysis and reading comprehension. It is designed to help students become confident in their approach to this type of standardized exam.
The course will be taught by two Saint Vincent College faculty members, Dr. Margaret Watkins, assistant professor of philosophy, who will focus on the critical reasoning part of the course, and Dr. Dennis D. McDaniel, associate professor and chair of the English department, who will concentrate on the reading comprehension component and the writing sample.
Scheduled Tuesday and Thursday evenings in one hour sessions beginning at 6:30 p.m. for seven weeks beginning Tuesday, March 12, students will receive one academic credit on a pass/fail basis for completion of the course. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants, but space may be available for Saint Vincent alumni and students of other colleges and universities.
The LSAT is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers. The test is an integral part of the law school admission process in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants.
