As Christina Rinnert tells it, if it weren’t for Marc Miller, dean and Ralph W. Bilby professor of law at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, she wouldn’t be fulfilling her dream of working as an attorney, representing victims of domestic violence.

Miller’s advocacy was the catalyst for the American Bar Association first allowing law schools to accept the Graduate Record Exam, on a case-by-case basis, five years ago. Rinnert was part of the first cohort of GRE-enrolled students enrolled at University of Arizona Law. She graduated in 2019 and passed the bar soon after.
