Although the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) has been administered to Chinese test takers in Taiwan and Hong Kong for more than 22 years, and in China for the past decade, there is very little documentation on the history, test taker volumes, performance, and law school admission rates of these candidates. This study reviewed the history of LSAT administration in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, identified the numbers of Chinese test takers in these regions, and compared the performance of Chinese test takers from the three regions since 1991. The numbers of Chinese test takers in the Peoples Republic of China have increased the most sharply in the past 6 years, concurrent with the recent rapid economic and political developments in China. The average performance of test takers from the three regions was quite comparable. Female Chinese test takers tend to score slightly higher than their male counterparts. Those test takers whose dominant language is English perform substantially better than those whose dominant language is Chinese. (Author/SLD)
