Boise State University and the University of Idaho Law School recently launched a joint law degree program that will allow qualified students to earn their law degrees in six years, with three years spent at each institution.

“With the University of Idaho’s College of Law expanding its offerings in Boise, this agreement creates great opportunities for Boise State students to access a high-quality juris doctorate program right here in our back yard with a reduced cost in dollars and time,” Boise State College of Arts and Sciences Dean Tony Roark said. “We’re very excited about the partnership and the options it presents for our students.”

Qualified students will spend three years at Boise State on their undergraduate education before moving to the University of Idaho for a three-year juris doctor program. This system is a partnership dedicated to training legal professionals in an efficient and effective manner, and at an affordable price for the students.

“As state schools, I think it is important to note how we have partnered to ensure a high-quality and affordable education with strong employment outcomes – with the 3+3 making the resulting degrees even more affordable,” University of Idaho College of Law Associate Dean Lee Dillion said.
