For many state Bars, an avenue is available for law students to obtain a limited license or legal intern license. For law students, eligibility typically requires that a student:
- complete 2 full years of legal education and be presently enrolled law school,
- be in some sort of legal placement (externship, internship, summer job, etc.), and
- be working under the supervision of a licensed attorney.
For the Idaho State Bar, Idaho Bar Commission Rule 226 governs the Legal Intern License and application requirements. Per IBCR 226, a student must have earned 60 credits towards her/his Juris Doctor degree with Concordia University School of Law to be eligible for a Legal Intern License.
Students are responsible for obtaining the Legal Intern License paperwork directly from the respective state bar.
The "Affidavit of Dean of Law School," or similiar form, should be submitted to Penny Wilcox and will be signed by the Dean's designee, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.
