A city of trees, trails, and innovation.
Beautiful Boise, Idaho – the City of Trees – has been getting a lot of recognition lately. Receiving accolades nationwide, Boise has been touted for its livability, education, thriving business community, healthy-conscience culture and more. The rest of the country is just starting to discover what locals have known for years: Boise is not only a great place to live but also a great place to thrive.
And it’s no wonder – with its endless open sky, inspiring mountainous terrain and pockets of inviting blue river throughout, Boise’s landscape fosters the adventurous and dynamic spirit it’s known for. Ambitious cyclists and runners flock to The Foothills, a 130-mile protected trail system north of downtown. The Boise Greenbelt, a 25-mile biking and walking trail and one of city’s most beloved outdoor areas, provides scenic views, wildlife habitat and walkable access – a great place to relax and recharge between law classes.
It’s not just its gorgeous natural landscape and thriving economy that makes the city unique. Boise is also hailed for its local art scene. Check out “BoDo,” or Boise downtown, and you’ll discover a vibrant area of trendy theaters, diverse restaurants and various boutique music venues peppered throughout several city blocks. Boise is also known for its Idaho Shakespeare Festival each summer. Set against the endless Boise foothills, the works of William Shakespeare and the world’s best classical playwrights are brought to life in a 770-seat, outdoor amphitheater beside the Boise River.
At Concordia University School of Law, we are proud to call Boise our home. The city’s unique spirit of innovation and entrepreneurialism are ingrained in every aspect of our culture. As the only three year law school based in Idaho’s vibrant capital and the state’s main legal hub, our optimal location ensures that students here have access to mentorships, pro-bono opportunities, and relevant courtroom experience that only a capital city can provide. Our location provides our students with the lasting legal relationships and connections that become essential after graduation.
