    12.05.17 Brooklyn Law School to Accept GRE for Fall 2018 Admission
    GRE News

    Brooklyn Law School will accept Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores beginning with applications for fall 2018 admission to its J.D. programs, which include accelerated 2-year, 3-year, and extended 4-year programs. Brooklyn joins a growing number of law schools nationally that will accept the GRE for admission.

    The Law School will continue to accept the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), enabling prospective students to submit LSAT or GRE scores—or both—for fall 2018.

    “The decision to accept the GRE in addition to the LSAT for application to our Law School is yet another way we are seeking to attract talented students from diverse education and career backgrounds—including in the sciences, engineering, medicine, and technology—who wish to pursue legal education,” said Dean Nick Allard. “As we prepare the next generation of lawyers for a rapidly changing marketplace, the way in which we attract and comprehensively evaluate our prospective law students must change as well. The GRE will give us another objective measure that is widely used in graduate education by which we can assess an applicant’s potential to succeed in both law school and professionally.”

    “Like most industries, law and policymaking have been forever altered by advances in technology that have significantly broadened the universe of skills and backgrounds necessary for the legal services industry to be truly responsive to society’s changing needs,” said Dean of Admissions Eulas Boyd. “By accepting the GRE, we are creating flexibility and options to pursue a law degree for highly qualified applicants with quantitative skills, including those with STEM backgrounds, and those for whom preparation for multiple advanced studies admissions exams is not feasible.”
