The College of Law offers four areas of emphasis from expert faculty with decades of experience who provide hands-on field work and clinical skills.
Design your curriculum and co-curricular activities in line with your personal goals and your academic plan.
Juris Doctor Degree
The University of Idaho College of Law offers the Juris Doctor degree in a three-year program. Starting fall 2017, students will be able to complete the program at either of our Moscow or Boise location.
If you wish to save time and money, and want to specialize in a particular area, you may be interested in our concurrent degree programs. These enable you to earn your J.D. while working toward another graduate or professional degree, which takes less time than usual since certain credits can be used to satisfy the requirements of both programs.
Master of Laws Degree
The Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree is a 9-month program from August to May that requires students to complete 24 credits. Students may select from one of four emphasis areas, including Democracy, Justice & the American Legal System, Natural Resources & Environmental Law, Business Law & Entrepreneurship, and Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution. To be considered for the LL.M. program, an applicant must have a first law degree (J.D., LL.B. or the equivalent) from a foreign law school (ADD) or ABA accredited law school.
