About the LSAT Prep Course at the University of Hawai'i

About the LSAT Prep Course

Our Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) Preparation courses are comprehensive and designed with the Native Hawaiian applicant in mind while also focusing on assisting program participants with the application process for the William S. Richardson School of Law.

The Associate Dean of Admissions and Student Services, Laurie Tochiki, participates as a key player of our program by visiting with program participants and answering questions regarding the law school application process. Dean Tochiki provides helpful insight into the process in addition to useful information that can help to make a Native Hawaiian a more competitive applicant.

Also integrated into our LSAT Prep course are class sessions with law school professors and students to share and discuss with program participants the Richardson law school experience. The effort to create a comprehensive LSAT Prep program also includes partnerships between 'Ahahui O Hawai'i, the Native Hawaiian Bar Association and the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation; two professional organizations that we are currently working with to bring Native Hawaiian attorneys into our classes.

What to Expect

Participants of our LSAT Prep Program can expect to receive two workbooks; one for class and one for out-of-class practice. Program participants will take a total of four practice LSATs used primarily to monitor progress. Our program is designed to coincide with existing LSAT dates. As a result, program participants can register for an LSAT and take our course before the chosen LSAT date. Our last day of instruction is no more than 5-7 days before a scheduled LSAT; making it easier for our participants to take the LSAT while their newly learned test-taking strategies are fresh in their mind.
