Pace Law to Accept GRE Scores for Fall 2018 Applicants

February 22, 2018

Decision to accept the GRE or the LSAT ensures Pace Law will increase access to legal education that emphasizes a combination of classroom learning and practical experiences

WHITE PLAINS, NY – Pace University’s Elisabeth Haub School of Law (Pace Law) announces that the school will accept Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, in addition to those from the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), for all applicants. After extensive review and discussion, the faculty of the law school voted to approve the change of policy effective immediately to allow applicants for the fall 2018 class to submit either GRE or LSAT scores with their applications.

“Since our founding, Pace Law has welcomed a strong, diverse group of applicants and students to the law school,” said Dean David Yassky. “I am proud that the faculty’s decision to allow GRE scores in addition to the LSAT continues our long-standing tradition of removing barriers to students pursuing juris doctor degrees.”

“We hope that accepting GRE scores will increase the breadth and diversity of our applicant pool,” said Associate Dean of Faculty Development & Strategic Planning Emily Gold Waldman.  “While we expect that most applicants will still submit LSAT scores, there are some who have already taken the GRE or for whom the GRE is more accessible.  We look forward to reviewing their applications.” 

The policy change to accept the GRE in addition to the LSAT will be on a trial basis. The Elisabeth Haub School of Law is currently accepting applications. Learn more about how to apply.
