Rodriguez, the Harold Washington Professor and Dean Emeritus at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, and Chair of the newly created Legal Education Advisory Committee at ETS, explores the history of law schools utilizing the GRE in addition to the LSAT and provides insight into why schools might consider including the GRE following the ABA's recent decision for widespread acceptance of either admission test. They discuss ETS' partnership with the University of Arizona Law School on JD-Next for aspirants or accepted law students to be exposed to what law study might be like or to prepare them for that study, and the PSQ initiative that is under development and which will assess 14 different soft skill areas and composites. Dr. Klieger and Dean Rodriguez go on to discuss ways that ETS is focused on the advancement of innovation and diversity, equity, and inclusion in legal education, and they both opine on the future of legal education.
