New Agreement with Concordia Fast Tracks Law School

Boise State University and Concordia Law School have launched a joint law degree program that allows students to fast track both their bachelor’s and juris doctor degrees. The 3+3 Law Degree Program is a new agreement that will allow qualified students to complete their undergraduate and law school education in less time: three years at Boise State, followed by the three-year juris doctor program at Concordia Law.

In addition, Boise State alumni will also receive a 20 percent alumni discount on their tuition at Concordia Law, and a pre-admission agreement allows Boise State students to automatically pre-qualify for Concordia Law if they meet certain criteria.

“Concordia and Boise State share a commitment to preparing the region’s future leaders and we look forward to smoothing the way for students as they pursue legal education and law-related careers,” said Cathy Silak, dean of Concordia University School of Law.

“We’re looking to expand opportunities for Boise State graduates, and with its mission of preparing leaders to transform society for the better, Concordia Law is a great partner fit for us,” said Tony Roark, dean of Boise State’s College of Arts and Sciences.

To qualify for the 3+3 Law Degree Program, Boise State students must submit an application by Feb. 1 of their sophomore year to indicate their interest in the program, then take the LSAT in June or September of the same year.
