As a married couple, we spent a lot of time together — in the classroom. That’s why we found it important to be able to spend time together outside of school and explore our home state of Idaho.

There are lots of fantastic getaways within driving distance from Moscow. Even though our study habits and general interests are very different, it was important for us to understand each other’s careers. The curriculum offered by the College of Law was diverse enough to fit our needs both as individuals and as a couple. While we found the College of Law community to be relatively small, we found that it is very supportive of all its students — especially those of us who have a spouse or family.

Choosing to attend school here together strengthened our relationship in so many ways. We experienced a lot of wonderful things here together that we couldn’t have gotten at a larger law school — daily interactions with our professors and administrators, unique opportunities for leadership within student organizations, rewarding externship placements, and lifelong friendships.
