Juris Doctor Degree

At the University of Idaho College of Law, the Juris Doctor degree is a three-year program in which you will work closely with faculty experts from a variety of backgrounds and with many decades of experience. The option is also available to specialize in one of our four emphasis areas, or enroll in one of our six concurrent degree programs.

Moscow and Boise

Starting in fall 2017, pending ABA approvals, students will have the option to complete all three years in either Moscow or Boise. 

A Century of Experience

For more than a century, the College of Law has prepared students to become state and national leaders in law, business and public service. Whether you want a legal career in private practice, the judiciary, government, business, education or public interest, our academic programs will equip you for success anywhere in the world.

Problem-solving and Hands-on Learning

You will learn through classroom discussions, advanced readings, trial practice, simulations, problem-solving exercises and hands-on learning. We invite you to become deeply engaged in your own education – to analyze, reflect, critique and create – from Day One.

A Lawyer’s Ethical Responsibilities

You will develop comprehensive legal expertise, high-level reasoning and critical thinking skills, and exemplary written and verbal communication skills. You will gain a profound understanding of the lawyer’s ethical responsibilities as a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system, and as a public citizen with a special responsibility for upholding the highest standard of justice.

Curriculum

Our teaching form involves the case method supplemented by selected readings into the nature of judicial and legislative processes, simulated exercises and problem solving.
