LSAT Prep

PSU’s LSAT prep course offers an engaging, affordable way to approach studying for the LSAT.

Most LSAT prep courses take the approach of preparing you for a single day–the day you take the LSAT.  But the LSAT is more than just an exam; its questions test skills you will use in law school and in your legal practice. These are life-long skills you can learn, and this course is designed to teach you a new way of thinking that will prepare you for success on the LSAT and beyond.

Any decent LSAT course will drill you with actual questions used on past exams, and this course has a drills component. But PSU goes a step further, putting those questions into the context of legal practice so you can see the underlying skills you need to develop and how you will apply those skills throughout your career.  It’s an engaging, exciting, revolutionary way to approach studying for the LSAT.

This affordable LSAT Prep Course is for students and graduates of all schools during the 2020 Summer Term.  The course will be led by Megan Needham, a graduate of Georgetown Law and a former attorney in the New York City office of an international law firm. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting closure of the PSU campus, this course will be held remotely.  In addition to hours of video lectures and dozens of previous LSAT exams, students will be able to participate in weekly small-group Q&A sessions with the professor.  These groups will be capped at 13 students per session and students will be assigned to meet either on Tuesdays from 1:00-2:30 p.m. (PDT) or Thursdays from 5:30-7:00 p.m. (PDT). Please e-mail lsatprep@pdx.edu with questions.
