Reminder – UNSW Law Admission Test

The LAT 2020 will take place on Tuesday 29 September 2020

The LAT is a written test that allows candidates to demonstrate their aptitude and skills for studying Law at UNSW. LAT results will be considered in addition to the ATAR (or equivalent academic result) in the UNSW selection process to differentiate amongst the many high achieving Law applicants. Completion of the LAT will enable UNSW to gain a more rounded view of a candidate’s capability to study Law; it will also give applicants the opportunity to demonstrate further their suitability for the Law program at UNSW.
