Each year thousands of highly qualified students choose to  study undergraduate law at university.  Relying on exam results alone, universities struggle to choose between them.

The National Admissions test for Law (LNAT) helps universities to make fairer choices by helping them to learn more about their applicants and their aptitude for studying law.

The LNAT is now seen by many of the UK’s top universities as an essential part of their undergraduate law admissions process.
