Law school is a big investment. When law schools are rated upon objective criteria, Idaho is recognized as one of the best values in the nation. The Winter 2004 edition of the Crittenden publication, PreLaw, rated law schools upon six objective criteria: tuition levels (2002-03 data), bar passage rates, employment rates for graduates, median amounts of scholarship grants, slots available for students in clinical programs, and faculty-student ratios. Upon these standards, the University of Idaho College of Law received an 'excellent value' rating -- making it the most highly rated public or private law school in the Pacific Northwest, and one of the most highly rated in the country.
