Valuing diversity in our community
Entrepreneur Malcolm Forbes once said, “Diversity is the art of thinking independently together.” At Concordia University School of Law, we are proud to have a program rich in diversity. During our admission process, we enroll the best and brightest, mindful of the fact that there is no single path to legal education.
Our students bring a variety of life and work experiences to the table. From recent graduates to those who served in the military or took time to explore a career. Different backgrounds, different skill sets, different stories – all working together to bring out the best in our students.
Concordia University School of Law has created an environment that’s extremely supportive for women. Through our Women Leading Women breakfast series we are reaching out to professional women in the Boise area, with the primary goal of creating more employment and leadership opportunities for women.
In addition, a large percentage of our students are veterans. As a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program, we are state certified to award veterans benefits and we value our veterans who are continuing their history of service while pursuing their legal education.
We also have specially created outreach programs – such as the “Love the Law” program sponsored by the diversity section of the Idaho State Bar – our admission department actively reaches out to under-represented communities. In addition, we have formed a diversity task force, with the goal of identifying needs and ways to support under-represented populations. By embracing our differences, we become stronger as a school.
Concordia University School of Law is committed to an inclusive and rich learning environment providing a rigorous law school education preparing, supporting and ensuring student success to become transformative leaders that will effect change in the global community in a meaningful and impactful way. To that end, the culture of Concordia University School of Law values and integrates gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation and identity, disability, age, religion, national origin and points of view.
