About the Course
This course will help to prepare you for the Law National Admissions Test (LNAT). No prior knowledge is assumed: the LNAT tests your aptitude, not your knowledge. However, students who do well will have sharp critical reasoning faculties and be able to engage with a range of social, technological, cultural and economical issues. This course will take you through these different areas and guide you in developing the skills required to do well.
The LNAT consists of 2 sections. Section A comprises 42 multiple-choice questions across 12 comprehension passages, and section B requires you to write a 500-600 word essay on one of three essay choices. This course will cover both of the 2 sections, focusing on verbal reasoning, critical reasoning, deductive and inductive reasoning, interpretation and analysis. We also look at distinctions between inferences, generalisations, opinions and conclusions, as well as practicing essay-writing on a range of possible titles.
