Law School Admission Test (LSAT- India )
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) - India was created by The Law School Admission Council, USA (LSAC) as a common admission test for entry into Indian law schools. Until recently, most law schools held their own entrance tests. LSAT-India was designed to ensure that Indian law schools could pick the best applicants on the basis of their performance in a test that follows the international standard. LSAT-India is delivered and administered in India by Pearson VUE.
Jindal Global Law School is the first law school in India to require LSAT-India scores for admission into its three-year Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) degree programme and five-year integrated B.A., LL.B. degree programme.

The test paper is divided into four segments. Its sectional division looks like this:
- Section 1: Logical Reasoning (i)
