Legal Education Eligibility Test


Legal Education Eligibility Test

The Legal Education Eligibility Test (LEET) is an examination which will be administered by the Korea Institute of Curriculum and Evaluation (KICE), intended to provide law schools in the Republic of Korea an evaluation metric to measure reading and reasoning skills required for successful legal education. The exam is similar in goal and content with the Public Service Aptitude Test (PSAT) administered as a part of the Korean civil service exams. The Law School Admission Test of the United States serves as the model for the test.
