Law

University of Idaho College of Law

Founded in 1909, the University of Idaho College of Law is one of the best small public law schools in the nation, recognized for its value and focus on the student experience. Students benefit from our rigorous curriculum, robust clinical program, pro bono requirement, and extensive academic and career resources. We make it our mission to continue the Idaho tradition of producing lawyers who are problem solvers, who believe that collegiality and zealous advocacy can co-exist and who know that we should all aspire to be good people as well as good lawyers.

 

College of Law Excellence Fund

Your gift to the College of Law Excellence Fund is a direct investment in the success of our students and faculty. This flexible-use fund allows the dean to support urgent and strategic opportunities in the college, including to support the legal aid clinic, fund moot court teams and upgrade classroom technology—to name just a few.

Your gift today to the College of Law Excellence Fund is the best way to impact the many programs and students in the college.

 

College of Law Scholarship Fund

The College of Law Scholarship Fund helps Idaho Law attract the best and most promising applicants and ensures that deserving students can pursue an Idaho legal education. As tuition costs continue to rise, it is more important than ever that we provide financial support to our students and make legal education as affordable as possible.

Your gift to the College of Law Scholarship Fund allows students to cover the cost of attending law school, which in turn keeps student related debt to a minimum.

 

College of Law – Legal Aid Clinic Fund

The College of Law – Legal Aid Clinic Fund supports all six of the College’s Legal Aid Clinics (Main Street Law Clinic, Immigration Litigation & Appellate Clinic, Mediation Clinic, FACES Domestic Violence Clinic, Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic and the Entrepreneurship Law Clinic). The Legal Aid Clinics allow third-year students, having earned their limited licenses to practice from the Idaho Supreme Court, represent clients in a variety of different courts under the supervision of clinic faculty. 

Your gift to the College of Law Legal Aid Clinic Fund allows students to gain meaningful real-life experiences while providing quality legal services to underrepresented populations.

 

College of Law – Student Emergency Fund (College of Law Class of 1964 Fund)

The College of Law Student Emergency Fund was established by the College of Law Class of 1964 in recognition of their classmates and the education they received at the Univeristy of Idaho College of Law. The fund is used to assist students who are facing temporary financial hardships which result from an emergency or crisis situation (e.g., accident, illness, travel emergencies, death of a family member, natural disasters). This flexible-use fund allows the dean and the associate dean for students to assist students who are in a crisis situation and need immediate temporary financial assistance.

Your gift to the College of Law Student Emergency Fund will help a student in need of emergency funding and allow them to continue with their legal education.
