The College of Law, established in 1909, has been a member of the AALS since 1914 and has been accredited by the ABA since 1925. The College of Law is located on the main campus of the University of Idaho in Moscow, about 90 miles south of Spokane, Washington, and about eight miles east of Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. Known as the “Heart of the Arts,” the Moscow-Pullman community is the cultural center of a vast inland area of the Northwest covering parts of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. In addition to cultural and entertainment events attracted by two major universities, the area is renowned for outstanding outdoor recreation.. With an overall enrollment around 300, students at the College of Law come with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. Students come mostly from the West, representing over 100 colleges and universities, 24 different states, and several foreign countries. Approximately 60 percent of our students are Idaho residents. The College of Law welcomes and actively seeks diversity, with particular attention to students of color and those who have overcome socioeconomic disadvantage. Due to our highly selective admission process and positive learning environment, including an academic support program run by a licensed attorney, academic attrition is less than 5 percent. The College of Law offers several dual-degree programs. A JD/MS/PhD in Water Resources Management is offered as part of the one-of-a-kind Water of the West initiative in cooperation with the University of Idaho College of Natural Resources. A JD/MS Environmental Science degree in cooperation with the University of Idaho College of Graduate Studies Environmental Science Program.
