Law National Aptitude Test (LNAT) - Law Entry Requirements

LNAT is a registered trademark of LNAT Consortium Limited.

This is a test of aptitude not of knowledge. LNAT was developed by a consortium of UK universities as a fair way to assess a candidate's potential to study law at undergraduate level, regardless of their education or personal background. The LNAT is designed to be a test of aptitude rather than educational achievement. The skills that candidates need to do well in the LNAT are also the skills that they need to do well in legal education.

It is used alongside standard methods of selection such as A Level (or their global equivalent) results, university applications, and admissions interviews, to give a more accurate and rounded impression of the student's abilities.

LNAT measures the verbal reasoning skills at the heart of legal education

  • comprehension
  • interpretation
  • analysis
  • synthesis
  • induction
  • deduction

The LNAT cannot be revised for, although those taking it will benefit from familiarising themselves with the style and format of the test. They can do this free of charge on the LNAT website.

All applicants are advised to go to the website to find out more about the Law National Aptitude Test (LNAT).
