In addition, internships and externships give you the opportunity to work side-by-side with some of the region’s most influential and important legal organizations, including the Idaho Attorney General’s Office, Idaho Legal Aid, and the Idaho Innocence Project.

The heart of Idaho’s legal community
The Concordia University School of Law campus is located in downtown Boise, Idaho – a thriving capital city known for its amazing quality of life and low cost of living. The school is just a short walk to the county courthouse, state Supreme Court, and appellate court, as well as the state’s largest law firms. And just like Concordia University in Portland, Concordia Law is a private, non-profit university.
Law school you can actually afford
We want students to graduate with a meaningful degree, not a mountain of debt. That’s why tuition at Concordia University School of Law is $13,000 below the national average for private law schools. Merit-based scholarships range from $3,000 to $14,000 – and they’re automatically renewable for students in good academic standing. Every student receives a guaranteed service grant of $5,000 per year. And because students don’t have to compete for class standing in order to maintain their scholarships, the class dynamic is more collaborative than competitive, compared to many other law schools.
Concordia graduates are eligible for a 20% discount off of tuition when enrolling at Concordia University School of Law.
