Idaho Supreme Court Submits Budget Request for Continued Planning of Idaho Law Learning Center

The Idaho Supreme Court has submitted the Judicial Branch’s budget request for funding in Fiscal Year 2010 to continue planning an Idaho Law Learning Center in conjunction with the “second century” initiative of the College of Law. The College was authorized by the Idaho State Board of Education (the University’s Board of Regents), on August 21, 2008, to engage in this collaborative process with the Supreme Court. Planning for the Learning Center, a multipurpose facility, has been supported by the Permanent Building Fund. The Supreme Court’s budget request contains the following description of the Learning Center’s purposes and components:

“… to enhance legal and judicial education in Idaho, to provide law related educational outreach to all Idaho communities and other colleges and universities, and to relocate and upgrade the State Law Library among other important goals. The proposed Idaho Law Learning Center will include a Law Library shared by the College of Law, its faculty and students, the Supreme Court, and its law clerks and court staff, legislators, members of the bar, and the general public, as well as education and training classrooms for shared use by the Law School, courts, libraries, and other public groups, to include state-of-the-art distance learning and on-line learning capabilities, and faculty and staff offices, work centers, and requisite office, gathering, and storage spaces.”
