WHAT IS THE LNAT?

The Law National Admissions Test (LNAT) is a complex assessment that is used by universities, in order to determine suitable candidates for their law programmes. The LNAT helps universities to make decisions on whether their law applicants are the right-fit for the course.

The LNAT is extremely difficult. You cannot revise for this assessment, as it requires an understanding of technological, economical, cultural and social differences. In order to work within the legal profession, you will need to have a very particular set of skills. In essence, the LNAT is a test of aptitude, rather than one of knowledge.

WHAT DOES THE LNAT MEASURE?

The LNAT is a test of a very particular set of skills and mindset. It will combine strategic testing with analytical assessment, in order to judge how well you can understand and interpret written information.

In order to pass the LNAT, you will need to demonstrate your ability in the following areas:

  • Analytical Ability
  • Reading Skills;
  • Interpretations;
  • Comprehensive Understandings;
  • Inductive and Deductive Reasoning Skills;
  • Verbal Skills;

The LNAT is designed to separate the strongest candidates from those who aren’t capable of pursuing a career in Law. Law courses are by nature extremely demanding. Universities only want to take on candidates who can cope, and the LNAT is the best way for them to judge this.

WILL I HAVE TO TAKE THE LNAT?

Not every law course candidate has to take the LNAT. You will only have to take the LNAT is the university that you are applying to is part of the LNAT consortium.

This is generally the case for the very top universities. The list is as follows:

  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Bristol
  • Durham University
  • University of Glasgow
  • King’s College London
  • The University of Nottingham
  • University of Oxford
  • SOAS University of London
  • University College London (UCL)

NON-UK UNIVERSITIES:

  • National University of Ireland (NUI), Maynooth
  • IE University (Spai

LNAT MULTIPLE CHOICE SECTION

Let’s have a look at some more information with regards to the multiple-choice section of the LNAT.

ABOUT THE LNAT MULTIPLE-CHOICE SECTION

The multiple choice section of the LNAT is computer based and will comprise of 42 multiple choice questions, based on 12 passages. Each passage will contain 3 to 4 questions. For this part of the assessment, you will be given 1 hour and 35 minutes to complete all 42 questions.

Within the multiple-choice section of the exam, you will be provided with different styles of questions, in order to assess your comprehension ability. It is important that you understand the skills being tested in this section and how they are extremely specific and tailored to aspiring law students.

ARGUMENT STYLE QUESTIONS

The passages that you will be presented with will be structured in some form of an argument. Whether that be one argument written by one writer, or multiple arguments written by several writers. You will need to be able to recognise what the writer/s is arguing, and the position that they take in regards to the topic being discussed.
These types of questions primarily assess your ability to understand arguments. They are usually broken down into phrases such as:

‘The main argument the author is trying to make is…’ or ‘The writer is arguing that…’

Both of these are types of positive phrases used to indicate what the author is trying to argue.

Negative phrases are used to highlight what the author is not arguing. These may include:

‘The writer does not argue that…’ or ‘The writer does not claim that…’

Sometimes, you may be required to assess the strength of an argument. Being able to distinguish between strong and weak arguments is a vital skill for any aspiring law student. You need to be able to recognise the importance of claims being made, and whether or not these views can be challenged.

You may be given questions in the style of:

‘Which of the following bests highlights the main argument…’ or ‘Which of the following can be assumed based on the main argument…’

No matter what style of question you are given, understanding the passage is extremely important. If you are able to work out what the author is trying to say, and what claims and/or assumptions are being stated, it will allow you to have a clear vision of the overall argument and the strength in which it comprises.

LITERARY STYLE QUESTIONS

This type of question refers to types of expressions and how well the author articulates themselves. Literary style questions will test your understanding of the argument by understanding the contextual meanings of words, phrases,

punctuation and tones which have been expressed, usually for a particular reason.Primarily, these types of questions focus on meaning and intent. Questions may appear as follows:

‘Which of the following phrases is used to illustrate…’ or ‘The writer uses the word to suggest…’

Language is an important part of the legal sector. You need to be able to articulate and appreciate underlying meanings, which can often be abstract, obsolete, indifferent or obscure. A key thing to remember is to look at the meaning of each word on its own, as well as reading it in relation to the overall argument.

ANALYTICAL QUESTIONS

Analytical questions rely heavily on interpretation. They focus on what may follow after, or even prior, to the argument. These types of questions look at the wider framework in which the passage may have been written, and how this could influence the writer’s arguments.

Questions regarding analysis could be seen as followed:

‘Which of the following is implied, but not stated…’ or ‘What can be assumed from…?’

In order to work out these types of question, it is important that a) you have a clear understanding of the argument and the point that the author is trying to make, and b) you think about consistency, and what can be related to the ideas and claims which remain consistent throughout the passage.

Law National Admissions Test Practice Questions

The History of the American Mafia


The American Mafia is one of the most mysterious and enigmatic criminal organisations in the world. Also known as ‘The Mob’, the American Mafia came to particular fruition during the late 19th century/early 20th century, as waves of Italians immigrated abroad to the United States.

Perhaps the most famous ‘mobster’ of all is Al Capone. Capone became a national celebrity between the years of 1925 and 1931, after taking control of the ‘Chicago Family’. Historically, Capone is widely considered the face of prohibition and organised crime. In reality, however, this image is slightly misjudged.

The real face of organised crime was a man named Charlie ‘Lucky’ Luciano, and his partner Meyer Lanksy. From 1925 till 1931, Luciano worked for a New York mob boss named Joe Masseria. Masseria was involved in the infamous Castellammarese War, between himself and another Sicilian Mob Boss named Salvatore Maranzano. Both Masseria and Maranzano were ‘Mustache

Petes’, who believed in an old school form of leadership, with the Mafia families ruled by ‘one boss’.

By 1931, with the war going badly for Masseria, Luciano turned his back on his leader and had him killed. Maranzano quickly proclaimed himself the ‘Boss of all Bosses’, but Luciano had other ideas. 6 months later, Maranzano was dispatched too. Luciano and Lanksy threw out the idea of having a ‘Boss of all Bosses’, and replaced this with a ruling committing; consisting of the 5 New York Family bosses, and the boss of the Chicago Outfit. This paved the way for other influential American gangsters, including Carlo Gambino, Frank Costello, Paul Castellano and John Gotti.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 01

For what reason does the author claim that Italians were immigrating to America?

A – Mussolini came to power in Italy and cracked down on Mafia related activities.

B – America had better opportunities for Italians than their homeland.

C – The Mafia was steadily declining in Italy.

D – The author gives no reason.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 02

Using the passage, what is the most likely explanation for the term ‘Mustache Pete’?

A – A man named Pete who had a thick moustache.

B – A man who believes in a singular form of leadership, with one ruling power.

C – A man who believes in killing anyone who disagrees with him.

D – A man who believes in the singular leadership of New York City.

Orcas


In the past decade, marine entertainment organisations have become synonymous with the plight of Orcas. These organisations have come under enormous criticism for their treatment of ‘Killer Whales’, and this has only increased after a spate of deaths and incidents in the past 10 years. Both trainers and bystanders have died as a result of ‘unexpected behaviour’ from trained Orcas.

What marine entertainment organisations fail to consider, is why their whales behave in this manner. Imagine spending your whole life contained in a tiny box, where in the wild you would travel up to 100 miles a day. Imagine your survival/ability to eat depending on whether you can correctly ‘perform’ ridiculous tricks, which have no basis or meaning in your mind. If you locked a human in the same, tiny space for several years; the reality is that they would become mentally disturbed. They would start acting out, and behave in a strange or dangerous manner. This is the reason that our prisons provide the worst of society with television, regular exercise and games. Human beings simply cannot cope in situations such as this; so why on earth would we subject animals to this way of life?

This madness needs to stop. We are subjecting magnificent and fiercely intelligent animals to a life of misery; and then reacting with surprise to their violent behaviour. Stop buying tickets, stop visiting shows. Only then can we shut down these intolerable organisations.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 03

In the first paragraph, the author uses the word ‘synonymous’. In what context is this used?

A – To show that when people think of Orcas, they think of marine entertainment organisations, and the wonderful entertainment that they provide.

B – To show that when people think about Orca cruelty, they think of how marine entertainment organisations are largely to blame.

C – To show that people associate Orcas with marine entertainment.

D – To show that people associate Orcas with attacks on human beings.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 04

What does the author believe to be the reason behind Orca attacks on humans?

A – She believes that the attacks are a result of being cooped up and repressed in a small container for all of their lives.

B – She believes that the attacks are a result of trainers failing to apply adequate safety precautions when in the water.

C – She believes that the attacks are a result of Orcas refusing to perform their tricks properly.

D – She believes that the attacks are result of failing to provide Orcas with sufficient entertainment.

ANSWERS

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 01

D. The author gives no reason.

The passage does not state a reason for Italian’s immigrating to America. While answer option A is true, we cannot use this if it is not stated in the passage.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 02

B. A man who believes in a singular form of leadership, with one ruling power.

The passage states that a Mustache Pete is someone ‘who believed in an old school form of leadership, with the Mafia families ruled by one boss.’ While Option C may apply to this, it is not referred to in the text. Likewise, there is no mention that ‘Mustache Pete’ applies only to New York City, regardless of the context in which the term is used.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 03

B. To show that when people think about Orca cruelty, they think of how marine entertainment organisations are largely to blame.

The word ‘synonymous’ means to be closely associated with something. In the context of the passage, the author is stating that marine entertainment organisations are now closely associated with cruelty to Orcas.

MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTION 04

A. She believes that the attacks are a result of being cooped up and repressed in small containers for all of their lives.

In the 2nd paragraph, the author states that one of the reasons for Orca attacks are that they ‘spend their whole lives contained in a tiny box, where in the wild they would travel up to 100 miles a day’. She believes that this leads to the whales becoming mentally disturbed.
