The LSAT is conducted for admission to LLB and LLM programmes at Indian law colleges.

During the exam, the candidates will be monitored through AI-enabled remote-proctors.

“The worldwide pandemic COVID-19 has clearly had a profound impact on how we live and on how business is conducted around the world. But we know, too, that it is acutely affecting the academic pursuits of millions of students everywhere,” LSAC’s president and CEO Kellye Testy said in a statement.
