UIS Pre-Law Center to offer preparation for LSAT

July 31, 2006

SPRINGFIELD – The Pre-Law Center at the University of Illinois at Springfield will offer an LSAT Primer Program – designed for anyone planning to take the Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT) – from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, August 14 through 16, in the Public Affairs Center on the UIS campus.

The program is open to everyone, but may be especially helpful to those planning to sit for the exam in September or December 2006 or February 2007.

Cost is $190.  Advance registration is due by Wednesday, August 9. 

"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 offers a basic overview of the law school application process, including how to apply for financial aid.  We will also discuss how to create a timeline that helps students apply early instead of waiting until the last minute."

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, with an individual critique of the student’s work.

The program is presented with support from UIS’ Institute for Legal and Policy Studies.

To register or for more information, contact Rendleman at drend1@uis.edu or call 206-6324.
