Practice material

sample paper is available to provide an indication of the type of questions you will encounter on the test. (To access the PDF version, click on the sample paper hyperlink.)

An online version of the (same) practice test is also available via candidates' ACER accounts. Please note responses in the online practice test are not saved or scored. Candidates are advised to familiarise themselves with the online sample test because LAT is a computer-based, written test. Candidates will type their responses in a text box.

No additonal practice material is available. Past tests are not available.

LAT does not require any knowledge specific to law. Therefore the HSC or other Legal Studies courses will neither advantage nor disadvantage candidate performance in the LAT.

ACER and UNSW do not recommend or endorse any commercially available courses offering LAT preparation.

LAT is designed to assess a candidate’s ability to generate their own ideas and express themselves through writing. Therefore the most appropriate preparation for LAT is for candidates to continue with their existing high school or tertiary study and exam preparation, which should include practice in formal written expression.

The LAT Office is unable to comment on the relevance or usefulness of commercial preparation courses. It is possible that some commercial preparation courses might provide misleading information or advice to candidates. Neither ACER nor UNSW conduct or endorse LAT preparation courses.
