What is LNAT?

The Law National Admission Test (LNAT) is a test used by law departments in a collection of UK universities, to determine if a candidate is able to succeed in a rigorous law course. Universities that require candidates to take LNAT include top ones like Oxford, Durham, King’s College London.

The test opens in September, you can take the test on any day the test is available at the test centre of choice within the application cycle. If you are applying for Oxford, you should take the test by 20th October; for other UK universities, by 20th January. Late applications are usually available for international applicants only and the deadline for the test is 30th June for these applicants.

The test takes 135 minutes and consists of two major parts: Section A with 42 multiple-choice questions, based on the reading of 12 argumentative passes, and Section B with essay writing on one of the three given topics. You are not required to have any prior knowledge on Law, but you need to be able to read and write analytically and critically at a fast pace. Another challenge is to put solid contents in writing, which require a substantial amount of guided readings. 


How to prepare for LNAT?

CANA offers private individual lessons and crash courses for LNAT preparation in Hong Kong and online. While the crash course covers techniques and coaching on all the aspects in the test, our students usually complement the course with private individual lessons for exposure to readings under guidance, so that accumulate sophisticated contents and develop adequate skills to excel in the essay writing part. Both private lessons and crash courses are taught by Oxbridge law graduates who are experienced in coaching LNAT.
