UMASS LAW –Applicants to UMass Law can now choose to submit either the results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the results of the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) with their law school application. In a November 2021 decision, the Council for the Section of Legal Education of the American Bar Association voted to permit law schools to accept GRE test scores from applicants in lieu of an LSAT score. The decision follows a successful six-year review by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) on the use of the GRE for law school admission. “Expanding access to justice is at the core of our identity as a public law school,” said UMass Law Dean Eric Mitnick. “Part of expanding access to justice is increasing access to legal education, so it is heartening to know that students will have multiple pathways to law school admission.” The GRE is generally considered a more convenient and more widely available testing option, offering the ability to take the exam at any time of the year, either on a computer at home or in more than 1,000 test centers across more than 160 countries.
