New Delhi, 20 February 2013 — More than 60 law colleges across India now recognise the Law School Admission Test—India (the LSAT—India™) scores as one of the admissions criteria for their institutes.

On 19 May 2013, Pearson VUE – a division of Pearson – will deliver the LSAT—India from 15 highly secure test centres across the country.
