Fail to recognize individual students’ strengths and weaknesses.

Talented young teachers handpicked from the best schools.

Weak instructors hired through an undiscerning process.

|Limited instructional tools
Ineffective strategies taken from a single source.
Small Class Sizes
Ivy Global limits the enrollment of LSAT classes so that the student-to-instructor ratio is never greater than 10.
For classes with more than 10 students, we staff the class with an additional instructor. The small seminar
style classes provide an optimal setting for teachers to engage with their
students and provide a tailored curriculum to their needs. Space for classes
is reserved on first-come, first-serve basis.
The following course material will be given to all registrants of our
LSAT classes and is included in the course fee. Each of our courses is carefully
designed and makes use of all of the best instructional and practice materials
available on the market, rather than being limited to a single proprietary
source. We believe that real practice tests, published by the Law School
Admission Council, should form the basis of any study effort for the LSAT.
||The Official LSAT SuperPrep
This test prep book provides a general overview of the types
of questions you will encounter on an actual LSAT exam. They include actual

Our weekend courses are taught by our LSAT Program Director, John Agozzino.
John is among the top scorers and one of the most experienced instructors in
North America. He has developed his own effective lesson style after years
of helping students prepare for the LSAT. Some of John's outstanding reviews
include: "My teacher (John) was nothing short of amazing." and "
I moved up to a 170 (from 160). John's ability to teach the logic games made
all the difference." Read his profile
