As the only law school in the State University of New York system, UB School of Law has always been committed to expanding pathways to a legal education. After a recent independent validity study, UB School of Law found the GRE to be a reliable indicator of law school potential. Acceptance of the GRE will be especially attractive to students considering one of the many dual degree options offered at UB, as well as students who have not made a final decision regarding their educational path.
