The College of Law offers three areas of emphasis for students who wish to focus on and take specific courses in that field. Each emphasis has expert faculty with decades of experience who provide hands-on fieldwork and clinical skills.
Business Law and Entrepreneurship
Students in the Business Law and Entrepreneurship emphasis gain experience in the practice of business law through a focused curriculum and clinical and externship opportunities. There are three tracks in this emphasis: Commercial Law, the Enterprise Organization and The Intellectual Property and Technology Law Track. Available in Moscow and Boise.
Intellectual Property and Technology Law Track
The Intellectual Property and Technology Law track of the Business Law and Entrepreneurship emphasis is designed with a focus on the legal issues that surround the protection of intellectual property and management of intellectual property rights. Available in Moscow and Boise.
Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our experiential education programs complement the Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution emphasis by offering students an opportunity to explore lawyering from a variety of perspectives. The LADR emphasis is phasing out by Spring 2018. No additional students may enroll.
Native American Law
The Native American Law emphasis offers outreach events, law student summer externship placements, and collaboration on projects in regional tribal communities, all under the supervision of an expert in the field. Available in Moscow.

This unique program in natural resources and environmental law focuses on developing sophisticated strategies and solutions to the world’s critical water shortage. Students may participate in the Idaho Symposium on Energy in the West, Environmental Law Society, and the NREL Edition (Natural Resources and Environmental Law) of the Idaho Law Review, among others.
