About the College

The University of Idaho College of Law is among America's best small state public law schools. Recognized nationally as an exceptional value, we emphasize quality over quantity. With an average enrollment of only 300 students, we guarantee the personal attention each student deserves and the numerous firsthand public service and clinical opportunities that set Idaho law alumni apart.

Our strong commitment to diversity ensures a vibrant community of scholars, lawyers and professionals. This distinctive, intimate collegial environment is further enriched by the surrounding region well known for its vast beauty, ample outdoor recreation and excellent quality of life.

A Commitment to Public Service

The National Jurist magazine recently recognized the University of Idaho College of Law as one of the nation's top 30 law schools for producing graduates entering public interest law. Our widely respected pro bono program is in the highest American Bar Association (ABA) category for law school pro bono programs. We are one of only three law schools in the nation with such a rigorous program.

A Century of Excellence

As Idaho's only accredited law school, we enter this second century with a commitment to providing quality, affordable public legal education statewide.  Our academic programs are anchored in rich history. First established in 1909, the University of Idaho College of Law has been a member of the Association of American Law Schools since 1914 and has been accredited by the American Bar Association since 1925.
