Does the LSAT indicate performance/preference in areas of law?

Postby beckoong » Thu Aug 10, 2017 10:26 am

Hey all! First post and not sure if this is the right forum. If not, sorry!
I was just wondering if there has been any study about what LSAT performance says about what type of law one is most suited for. I guess, does high performance on a certain section of LSAT indicate aptitude for a certain type of law? Games has always come really easily for me and I actually think they're pretty fun. Is there an area of law that has work similar to this type of logical reasoning exercise? If there isn't an actual study, have you noticed anything?
Thanks!

Short answer: No.

Long answer: No. Studies have basically only looked at the LSAT's correlation with law school performance and bar passage rate. There is likely very little association with LSAT score and practice area.

Were you not satisfied with the "No" answers you already got in your other thread?
