Do you think like a lawyer?


My preferred title for this post was actually “The Law School Admission Test or sudoku?”

The other day I came across the website of the LSAT (the Law School Admission Test). It forms part of the law school admission process in the United States, parts of Canada, and some other countries.

The administrators of the test say that it “provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants”.

However, I’ve thought of another use. Now I’ve never been able to see the attraction of sudoku, but I could really get into these games! At this point I’ll probably be lynched by all those who have had to sweat over the LSAT for real.

Well, for all those of you who have a rainy afternoon to spare and who haven’t had the pleasure of doing the LSAT, have a look at the sample test here:

Here’s a taster though…

All Labrador retrievers bark a great deal. All Saint Bernards bark infrequently. Each of Rosa’s dogs is a cross between a Labrador retriever and a Saint Bernard. Therefore, Rosa’s dogs are moderate barkers.

Can you guess what’s coming next?!
