    About LESAT

    TAKE LESAT

    The LESAT is positioned to be a standardized test for benchmarking Law graduates for entry positions into Law Firms in Nigeria. The LESAT is designed to measure the skills necessary for a successful career in the legal world. LESAT will test the verbal reasoning skills at the heart of the legal profession: comprehension, interpretation, analysis, synthesis, induction, and deduction. These skills will serve the Lawyer well throughout their professional life and legal career. LESAT would be an invaluable tool that would greatly assist Law firms in profiling, screening and selecting graduate Lawyers that seek a career with their firms. The core skills the LESAT hopes to achieve from the test takers would be strategic reading, analysing argument, understanding formal logic, and making deductions. To be successful on the LESAT, a Lawyer must be able to make deductions and draw valid inferences from related rules and statements in every section. LESAT hopes to reward what the candidate can do and not what the candidate has learned. The LESAT would give the candidate an opportunity to showcase his abilities/qualities. A Lawyer who has sat for the LESAT can forward their test score to any of the LESAT participating firms of their choice.
