Law

Law will always challenge you. Whether it’s intellectually, because of the hard work you need to put in or because of the people you need to deal with. Most of the time overcoming these challenges will help you grow as a person and even make you better at your job.

Law is certainly rewardingIt could be rewarding because of working in the charity sector and helping disadvantaged people. Or it could be rewarding because you’ve taken part in a million pound sale of a corporation. Or perhaps the little victories will provide you with a great sense of satisfaction too like helping out a colleague or providing a great idea to your firms partner. Regardless of your role, you will get a great feeling of accomplishment from performing your job to a high, professional standard.

LNAT

The LNAT is used by universities to help them select people for their undergraduate law courses.

The test doesn’t test your knowledge of law or any other subject. Instead, it helps universities assess your aptitude for the skills required to study law. The content of the LNAT is managed by the members of the LNAT Consortium. The test itself is administered by Pearson VUE, under contract to LNAT.

The LNAT helps universities make fairer choices from the many highly-qualified applicants who want to join their undergraduate law programmes. It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as UCAS application  and academic qualifications.

It is a two-part test: multiple choice questions based on passages of text, and an essay.

Section A: The first part is a computer-based multiple choice exam. You’ll be asked to read passages of text and answer questions that test your comprehension of them. Your scores from the multiple choice section of the test are checked by computer, and a mark out of 42 is created This is known as your LNAT score.Section B: In the second part of the test you will be asked to write one essay from a list of three proposed subjects. This section is not marked by the test centre and does not contribute to your LNAT score, but it is your opportunity to show your ability to construct a compelling argument and reach a conclusion.

Both your LNAT score and essay are made available to the participating universities. These are then used to supplement your university application and show your aptitude for studying undergraduate law.
