Paying for Law School

The University of Idaho College of Law has been named a Best Value Law School by "preLaw Magazine." We offer one of the most affordable law programs in the nation with a strong return through career opportunities. Idaho residents can expect to pay less than half of what they would pay at most other schools – public or private – in the region. For students from outside Idaho, our non-resident tuition is significantly lower than schools in surrounding states.
