Paterson is a great place to study for the LSAT – find a library, a cafe, or a bookstore and get started on your dream of getting into law school. We've assembled data on the top law schools in the Paterson area, the best options for LSAT prep in Paterson, and some of the most popular LSAT testing locations. The LSAT is a paper-based test only offered four dates a year - in early June, late September/early October, early December or early February - and testing sites do fill up quickly. Make sure you check registration deadlines and develop your preparation plan.

Since law schools put so much weight on the LSAT in the admissions process, it's wise to find out what a competitive LSAT score is for the schools to which you are planning to apply. Then, build your prep plan and start to attack the LSAT. You can do it and Kaplan will help.

Most people studying for the LSAT spend about three months actively preparing. Once you've decided on a test date, you'll be more motivated to study.

With Kaplan, you'll have exhaustive resources available to you, including every released LSAT exam (over 80 real tests) and unlimited access to our industry exclusive - The LSAT® Channel - providing you hundreds of hours of live or On Demand instruction by Kaplan's best teacher on every LSAT topic and difficulty level.

Whether you choose to use a book or local In Person or online LSAT prep courses like the ones we've recommended below, you'll want to structure your study time early. Note that if there's not a convenient class option in Paterson, you'll likely find a live course online that can help to raise your score.
