COVID-19 and the Remote LSAT
The LSAC put the LSAT-Flex into place in 2020 to provide a safe way for test-takers to take the LSAT at home. Because the COVID-19 pandemic still makes public gatherings unsafe, they have decided to continue using the remote LSAT format LSAT through June 2022.
During this period, the LSAT will be a remotely proctored, online exam.
The test dates for the June LSAT will be in the week of June 11, 2022. Check back closer to this date for more specific scheduling details as LSAC releases them!
June 2022 Remote LSAT Dates and Deadlines
The June LSAT is a great opportunity to take the exam if you’re applying for the 2023 admission cycle. (It won’t work for Fall 2022 admissions in the vast majority of cases–classes start in three months.) It’s early enough in the application process that you can retest if needed. On the other hand, if you get the score you want on the first try, then you’ll have lots of time to get the rest of your application ready without the LSAT weighing on your mind.
Primary June LSAT Dates
The main June remote LSAT administrations are the week of June 11, 2022. As we mentioned above, LSAC hasn’t yet released exact dates for the exam, but check back–we’ll keep updating as more information becomes available!
June Remote LSAT Assistance Request Deadline
- Sunday, May 22, 2022
If you’re among those who may have trouble getting ahold of anything necessary to take the exam–the computer hardware (a laptop or desktop computer with camera and microphone—LSAC uses audio and video feeds to proctor the exam), an internet connection, or a quiet place to take the remote LSAT—you can request assistance from LSAC.
LSAC’s assisted thousands of students with loaner devices, internet access, and appropriate places to test during the remote LSAT. However, because of these specific technical requirements, it’s key to make arrangements early.

June 2022 LSAT Score Release Date
LSAC hasn’t yet published the date for June 2022 LSAT score releases. More info will be posted just as soon as they release it!
In the meantime: create an online account with LSAC. This account will let you view your scores and send them to law schools about two weeks after your exam.
LSAT Score Release and the LSAT Writing Sample
To get your LSAT scores, you’ll need to sign up for an LSAC account; you’ll also need to complete LSAT writing. This completed writing sample is a relatively new condition for score release. Because of this, LSAC is opening the Writing section option eight days before each test’s administration.
If you’re still focusing on prepping for the multiple-choice portion of the test up until the exam date, you can also take the Writing section after taking the LSAT. Nevertheless, you’ll need to complete it before you receive your scores.
Take the time now to decide if the June 2022 LSAT is right for you by:
- Determining your starting LSAT score based on a practice test;
- Setting your goal score based on your target law schools; and
- Establishing how much time you need, and how much time you actually have, to dedicate to LSAT prep.
Once you go through these steps, you’ll feel confident making your decision on which LSAT test date is right for you.
Whenever you decide to take the LSAT, remember the key to getting your best score on the LSAT is making sure you have sufficient time to prepare.
