Engaging the Local Community
Concordia University School of Law works hard to support the Idaho legal community. We join with non-profit organizations to increase legal services within the region and seek opportunities to join with community and educational organizations to co-sponsor lectures, educational programs, and special events. Here are some specific ways we provide services to the legal and Boise communities.
Law School Facility
Concordia University School of Law has a state-of-the-art facility with a variety of public-use areas. With Smart classrooms that accommodate 10 to 150 – including built-in presentation software and microphones – we frequently partner with non-profits, law firms, and legal organizations to host events on campus. For more information, please contact Therese Pritikent at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-639-5402.
The school maintains an active relationship with the Idaho State Bar, as well as various sections and committees.
Women Leading Women
The Law School’s founding dean, Cathy Silak recently launched Women Leading Women, a series of breakfasts and panel discussions relating to professional women in the Boise area, with the primary goal of creating more employment and leadership opportunities for women.
The objectives for the series are: to encourage more women to attend law school and further their careers; to promote dialogue on how to succeed professionally while maintaining balance in one’s personal life; to provide a platform where discussion about challenges to professional women in Idaho and how to handle them effectively can take place; and to develop relationships with professional leaders in the community with the goal of creating more employment and leadership opportunities for women.
The Women Leading Women breakfasts and discussions are open to prospective students, current students and professionals in the Treasure Valley. Breakfasts are scheduled quarterly.
Pro Bono Partnerships
Students at Concordia University School of Law are engaged with the Boise community through a wide range of pro bono partnerships.
Richard C. and Shirley I. Fields Transformation of Society Scholarship
Concordia University School of Law is committed to providing scholarship support to students who go above and beyond to serve their community. This scholarship, named in recognition of two well-respected members of the Boise community, covers 90 percent of tuition for talented individuals committed to the transformation of society through service.
LEED Certified Facility
Turning an old brick building on the underdeveloped edge of downtown into a state-of-the-art 54,000 square foot LEED-certified campus demonstrates our commitment to the local Boise community and its environmental sustainability.
