After ABA Decision, Law Schools Deciding Whether To Accept GRE For Fall 2019 Admissions Season Are In A Quandary: Is A School-Specific Validation Study Required?

GREFollowing up on my previous posts:

ABA Journal, After Withdrawal of Law School Admissions Test Rule Revision, Will Fewer Schools Accept the GRE?:

Although a proposed standard regarding the use of entrance exams other than the LSAT was tabled at the ABA House of Delegates assembly ... , the council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar says that the alternate tests can still be used, providing schools can demonstrate that the tests are valid and reliable.

Law school deans expect that fewer schools than anticipated will now be accepting other entrance exams besides the LSAT. And while it seems clear that those schools planning to do so must submit validity studies to the section, how school-specific those studies must be seems unclear to some.
