Summary: Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law will accept the GRE next year.

Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is joining many of its fellow law schools by announcing that it will accept the GRE, starting next year. According to the school’s press release, “The decision will open the door for future lawyers interested in Cardozo’s robust offerings in intellectual property and technology law.”


Lawcrossing stated that Cardozo is a top law school in the country, and it is a part of a well-respected research university.

“As part of the Yeshiva University, considered the most highly regarded research university in the United States, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law was founded in 1976,” Lawcrossing wrote. “[Many graduates] find themselves being offered positions with some of the most highly respected law firms in the nation; others choose to pursue the legalities of politics and still, others, continue to move forward in their educations with the school’s LLM program.”

Cardozo stated that it was expanding its admissions to attract students interested in IP and technology law. They will accept the GRE or the LSAT for the incoming May 2018 and Fall 2018 entering classes.

“We are on the cutting edge of law and technology with expanded programs in bitcoin, cybersecurity, data law and more,” said Dean Melanie Leslie. “The opportunity to accept both the GRE and the LSAT could not come at a better time for applicants and for Cardozo.”

University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law was the first law school to offer the option of submitting GRE scores, and since then, prestigious law schools such as Harvard, Northwestern, Columbia, and more have followed suit.

Kaplan Test Prep released survey results this year that said the apprehension of changing admission policies to accept the GRE have lessened.

“According to the responses of 128 law schools across the United States, 25 percent say it’s an admissions policy they plan to implement, up from just 14 percent in Kaplan’s 2016 survey; 45 percent say they have no plans to do so, a drop from 56 percent who ruled it out in last year’s survey; and 30 percent are not sure, the same as in 2016,” Kaplan stated.

Like Cardozo, the law schools who have chosen to accept the GRE said that the reasoning behind that was to diversify the application pool and to attract more students with STEM backgrounds.
