The goal of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) 2018 Skills Analysis Study is to identify the skills that law school faculty consider important for success in required law school courses. If certain tasks are required of all or most law school required courses, the skills involved in those tasks can be inferred to be essential to success in law school. This report provides evidence for assessing the validity of the current Law School Admission Test (LSAT), which will guide the development of new item types, item formats, and test specifications for future versions of the LSAT, including digital versions.
