do foriegn University accept lsat India score for ba llb pls tell?

Masira 23rd Dec, 2019
Hello,

No, the LSAT India scores are not acceptable in foreign universities. The LSAT India scores are accepted by some private colleges in India and in some foreign colleges that have partnered with Indian Law schools apart from them Indian scores are not accepted. You need to give LSAT abroad which is an international exam in order to study BA LLB in foreign country.

Hope this helps, Good luck.
