Our Story

We think it can actually be simple to get a high LSAT score.


We started in 2007 when Tommy Hall, then an aspiring law student, saw smart friends take LSAT prep courses and still under-perform on the LSAT. It was easy to see where these courses (still common today) went wrong: they were made to get OK results for many people, not great results for everyone. They offer no real student help at the individual level and they’re built around companies’ profits rather than each student’s needs.


Nexus LSAT was born out of this problem. We set out to create something truly unique: customized courses rich with personal attention. Today, hundreds of students benefit from Nexus LSAT’s personalized approach to LSAT prep.
