Concordia University School of Law

Summary: After applying for provisional accreditation in August, the law school has been granted their status just in time for their nine graduates to take the bar exam.

Concordia University School of Law in Boise, Idaho finally received its provisional accreditation from American Bar Association. The school first applied last August but the association’s Council of Legal Education required more information from the school.

A provisional status allows students, at this time only nine graduates, to take the bar exam in Idaho or any other state except New York. New York requires an additional step. When the ABA delayed their accreditation status last August, 55 students in the second and third year programs left for the University of Idaho law school. The U of I has a campus six blocks from the Concordia location for just second and third year students.

Concordia University is a nonprofit Lutheran school that started in Portland but expanded with the law school in Boise. The plan to open the school started in 2007 but they weren’t able to enroll students until 2012 with 75 students. The school now has about 100 students.

Now that the school has an accreditation status, they can use it as a recruiting tool to entice more students to attend. With accreditation also comes the opportunity for scholarships and participation in recruiting events. The law school was must wait two more years until applying for full approval from the ABA.
