Basic Information
Religious Affiliation: 



Concordia University, in Boise, Idaho, is in the process of seeking American Bar Association accreditation. The school opened in fall of 2012, and its first class had 75 students, followed by 44 in 2013. The Lutheran law school appointed former Idaho Supreme Court Justice Cathy Silak as dean of school.

One of the unique advantages of being such a small school is that all students participate in the legacy mentoring program, which pairs students with an appropriate mentor in the Idaho legal field.

“We encourage mentors and students to  participate in certain activities together, such as attending court hearings where the mentor is arguing in court or depositions,” Silak said. “The mentor relationship is really an effort to equate the students with reality of practice.”

Concordia University decided to award all students admitted in fall 2013 a $15,000 grant to ease the tuition of $28,500. More than 90 percent of students are Idaho residents, and 50 percent of the inaugural class received LSAT scores between 150 to 156 and had a GPA between 2.93 to 3.5, according to its website.
