Subject: LSAT

Question:

What is the most important thing to do when studying for the LSAT?

Inactive
Madeleine D.
Answer:

Start with the basics first. While practice tests are a necessary part of studying and adequately preparing for the final test date, it is primarily important to have a fundamental understanding of the logical bases of the test. Such bases include mapping logic games, understanding sufficient and necessary logical relationships, and recognizing patterns in reading samples. If you master these basics first, the exam itself will become much easier to understand.

Question:

Why is the study of religion important to an atheist?

Answer:

Religion permeates most aspects of public life. In the United States, Christianity is written into the Constitution and government officials make pleas to morality when garnering support. Globally, upwards of 90% of wars have been fought over religion in one form or another. Even in strictly secular countries, such as France, religion creates social unrest in situations where religious people are unable to express their faith, such as the controversy surrounding the ban on head coverings for Muslim students. Therefore, even for someone who does not prescribe to a specific religious belief, an understanding of religious motivations and interactions is necessary for understanding human interaction on a broader scale.

Question:

What can the founding fathers teach us about the nuances of democracy?

Answer:

The United States is built on notions of freedom and subjugation. Such notions are represented in the character of the founding fathers themselves. James Madison authored the Bill of Rights, which champions concepts of free speech, freedom of religion, and due process, from a desk that overlooked his tobacco fields, where the people he enslaved toiled for hours a day. Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, which discusses the inalienable rights of every man, while his enslaved half-brother stood behind him and held the candle that illuminated Jefferson's work. There is no question that the documents these men wrote are great works. At the same time, there is no question that these men are deeply flawed. Recognition of both aspects is necessary, for they directly correlates to the state of our democracy today. While there are certainly great things about United States democracy, there are inherent flaws in the system that must be acknowledged, discussed, and addressed.
