LSAC developed the LSAT Writing section in response to feedback from test takers. The new approach will shorten the LSAT test day and provide more flexibility for candidates taking the exam, as they can now complete the writing sample at a convenient time and place of their choosing. LSAC also wanted to provide law schools with samples of written work that were typed, thus greatly enhancing legibility, and composed under conditions similar to those in which law students produce their written work.
