Mario Mainero, Professor of Academic Achievement and Director of Bar Services at Chapman University, Dale E. Fowler School of Law thinks so.

One Way LSAC Can Help Applicants (and Law Schools)

The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) is an organization that exists to work with law schools, and their applicants. One of the primary roles of the LSAC is the administration of the LSAT. Students interested in law school are required to take the LSAT on dates and in locations established by the LSAC. I think it would be very helpful to applicants and law schools, if the test could be administered at the convenience of each applicant. The technology is certainly available to allow for testing at service centers around the country. Those service centers could include the law schools themselves, and each service center could make certain that the integrity of the test is not compromised. It is 2015, but we are still testing like it is 1975.
