A "new" standardized test from LSAC

Looks like they're reusing questions from previously-administered LSATs.

What are the answers to the sample LR questions? I got 2,3,4 (in that order).

This seems like a dumb idea.

Basically an LSAT without RC and less questions? Sign me up.

Since it will be given to job applicants during or after completing law school, the test should be a walk in the park compared to law school exams.

You think you are done with and will never have to see or work an LSAT question ever again, then years later she suddenly pops her head back up into your life like an ex-GF and says "I'm back!"

This test is intended only for graduates from schools that didn't require the LSAT for admission, right? I don't want to do another logic game ever again!

Yeah, it does appear that is the case but it's not certain from the short description on the LSAC page.

To get the required law degree/certification/license to practice law in most countries (meaning the local laws of the particular country, say Spain or wherever, and practicing only in that country using only/mainly their laws, hence not practicing what is typically referred to as international law), the LSAT is not involved. However, that has been changing in the past few years (LSAT-India, LSAT-China and a few others).

To practice what I'll call North America law or law that requires a JD from an ABA approved LS, you have to take the LSAT for LS admission.

The article isn't clear about what it means by international law/firms. Since it is a screening tool for firms to use on job applicants, I wonder if a US based firm with international satellite offices would use the test on job applicants to the international offices, and if so, would they use it on job seekers that have an ABA LS JD, hence already took the full LSAT or only on applicants that obtained a legal education in the international country where they are seeking a job that did not have to take the LSAT to get the legal education.
