Manhattan Review LSAT Prep Home

Former Manhattan Review students from the U.K. now have rewarding careers in almost every industry and field. Many go on to work for Fortune 500 companies, while some have started their own businesses, succeeding in the entrepreneurial and startup world.

Other scholars and academics begin their public-sector careers as educators, researchers, and government officials.

Manhattan Review's LSAT instructors are hired through a rigorous, comprehensive, and thorough screening process. Other test prep companies throughout London and elsewhere might simply just put an emphasis on a prospective instructor’s test scores; however, for us, test scores are only the starting point. In our instructors we also look for academic accomplishment, professional success, a zealous passion for teaching, and compelling personal backgrounds. We pride ourselves in retaining well-rounded and accomplished LSAT teachers in the London, the U.K., and beyond.
Many of our LSAT instructors are graduates of esteemed schools such as Cambridge, Oxford, the London School of Economics, Harvard, and Stanford, just to name a few. However, we also realize that the most discriminating institutions do not have an ownership on talent. Our tutors have distinguished themselves in many different regards, in many different areas and can offer fresh perspectives on how to approach the test with their own LSAT experience, as well as our detailed course outline. At Manhattan Review, we treasure instructors with a sharp eye for precision with a nuanced personal experience of the exam.
Our tutors truly enjoy contributing to your academic success alongside your test-taking skills. They are well aware taking the LSAT exam is for hardworking and determined people, and aiding London students in that journey is highly rewarding and gratifying. In addition to their academic expertise, our instructors also have active and fulfilling lives outside of work, with diverse hobbies and interests that make them accessible, well-rounded and very approachable. At Manhattan Review, our teachers are more than just a high test score; they're an inspiration.
The early beginnings of Manhattan Review began at Columbia Business School in 1999 when Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at the university, earned a reputation for explaining advanced and complex subjects in an accessible manner while giving lectures to MBA students. Some of these students thought that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to delivering test preparation for graduate school admissions tests such as the LSAT. They challenged him to come up with a method of prep that was better than their own unproductive and lackluster experiences. Meissner responded by creating original lectures that covered LSAT, GRE, and GMAT material from a different yet concise and simplified perspective. Students recognized that his perspective was far superior to the routine memorization and dull tricks offered by other prep companies.
Since then, Manhattan Review has grown into a venerated international educational services company, with branches not just in London, but all across the U.K. and in major European, North American, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, and IELTS, in addition to admissions consulting and application services. We offer our students in-depth knowledge of higher education and standardized testing while providing a holistic context to London and the U.K., as well as the other cities in which we serve.
Joern Meissner is an internationally renowned business school professor with a Diploma in Business Management at the University of Hamburg and a PhD in Management Science at Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the top Ivy League Schools. Upon completion of his doctoral degree, Meissner chose the career track of an academic and has now more than 25 years of experience as a postsecondary educator. His passion for teaching is apparent, as he has taught business courses at the University of Hamburg, Lancaster University Management School, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management, and the University of Mannheim. Meissner's research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been published in several well-known and respected academic journals. While Professor Meissner thoroughly enjoys his research, he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun; imparting knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was paramount to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most treasured principle today.
