The American Bar Association requires that an official degree transcript showing the date that you received your bachelor's degree be included within your official student file. The transcript copies that LSAC provides as part of your admission application are not official transcripts. Please arrange for a transcript from your degree-granting institution to be mailed to the address below by July 31, 2017.

Confirm Bar Admission Requirements
Each individual state determines its own character, fitness, and other qualifications necessary for admission to the bar. Accordingly, your admission to law school does not guarantee that you will automatically qualify for admission to the bar upon graduation. You are, therefore, strongly advised to determine, prior to entering law school, the requirements for admission to the bar in each state in which you intend to practice. ABA Standard 504(a). For more information, please see ABA Guide to Bar Admission Requirements 2015.
Upon receipt of your full deposit, the law school will register you for your first year of coursework. Classes for full-time students will be scheduled between 9:00 am-9:00 pm. Classes for part-time students will be scheduled between 5:30 pm-9:00 pm.
New student orientation is August 9 - 12, 2017. Classes are scheduled to begin on August 14, 2017. You will receive an orientation packet in early August, which will include more detailed information about this event. Please be aware that your attendance at orientation is mandatory and that you are required to attend all four days.
Suggested Summer Reading
The Law Librarians have selected ten eclectic titles for students who don’t want to while away their summer before they start law school. We suggest that incoming students first check for the title they are interested in at their local public library. If you are located in the Tresaure Valley please feel free to stop by to pick up a title you are interested in. If you are unable to find the title at your local public library or aren’t located in the Treasure Valley, the Law Library staff will happily mail a copy of your desired title to your home address. View the list here.
CU Intranet and myCU Portal
Soon after we process your seat deposit, you will receive email instructions on how to create a network account that will help you connect to the CU Intranet. The information on the CU Intranet comes directly from the Concordia University administrative database and contains all of your student records.
Once you have established a network account, log into the CU Intranet to access your My.CU ID and PIN. (Look in the top right corner of the intranet page to find your My.CU ID and the link to look-up your PIN.) This will give you access to the My.CU portal that allows you to look up your transcripts and update information with the registrar.
Student Identification Cards
The Office of Student Services and the law library will issue student ID cards to all law students during orientation. Your student ID card will be necessary for entering the building, taking examinations, and using the George R. White Law Library. Students may also be able to use their ID cards for student discounts offered off-campus. A replacement charge of $10 is assessed and billed directly to student accounts for lost or damaged cards. If your student ID card expires before your date of graduation, you may obtain a new card at no cost.
Students can purchase textbooks and software through the online Concordia bookstore. You will need to know the term, subject code, course number, and CRN of the classes you are taking.
Because of the importance of access to networked information in all aspects of student life and the extent to which the school relies on electronic communications, all entering students must have a portable computer capable of accessing the internet from home, as well as within the law school.
For additional information on technology assistance, network accounts, printing limit, software or hardware recommendations, intranet resources, wireless services, etc., or for information on acquiring Microsoft Office software at little or no cost, please visit the IT Services webpage.
