    Admission to the bar in the United States is the granting of permission by a particular court system to a lawyer to practice law in the jurisdiction and before those courts. Each U.S. state and similar jurisdiction (e.g. territories under federal control) has its own court system and sets its own rules for bar admission, which can lead to different admission standards among states.   A year later, Harvard Law School announced that it, too, would accept applicants based on their GRE scores. Today, roughly 1 in 4 American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools accept the GRE, and that number is likely to continue to climb. There are other admissions models as well. For example, Concord Law School does not require the LSAT.
