Summary: Concordia Law School gains provisional accreditation from the ABA.

When Concordia University School of Law opened in fall of 2012, they had a set plan for ensuring their student body would qualify to take the bar upon graduation. They made it just in time, getting a provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association, a process that takes a few years, following exacting strictures.

“This is truly exciting. We have such a high-quality student body, faculty and staff. And so now these students will be eligible to take the bar exam here in the state of Idaho. So we’re just so excited for them too,” said Dean Cathy Silak.

Students are prepping for the July bar exam. Not only that, but they will be celebrating their first commencement ceremony August 8 with a graduating class of 27.

Their next step will be to get full approval from the ABA, a milestone they must wait a few years yet even to apply for. They will, meanwhile, continue offering the only 3-year law program in Boise, a program emphasizing community service, as they work with Idaho Legal Aid to give their students the opportunity to help underserved populations.

Considering the chutzpa required to open a law school during one of the worst dry spells in American law school history, that they offer a program uniquely designed to offer community service is especially impressive.
