Concordia plans to open Boise law school

The Associated Press


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The board of regents at Concordia University has announced its intent to open a law school in Boise, Idaho.

The private Lutheran college in Portland currently doesn't have a law school. But the board has authorized university President Charles Schlimpert to start a national search for a dean who would lead the planning, organization and operation of the new school.

Boise is one of the few major metropolitan areas in the country without a law school. Concordia's decision comes as the University of Idaho works on a proposal to open a branch law school campus in the capital city.

Jeanie-Marie Price, Concordia's interim marketing director, said Wednesday the board will decide in July whether to give final approval to the plan.
