Concordia University School of Law, in Boise, Idaho, is the latest law school to receive full accreditation from the American Bar Association. The Lutheran law school opened in fall 2012 and has had fewer than 150 students. It appointed former Idaho Supreme Court Justice Cathy Silak as dean of school. One of the unique advantages of being such a small school is that all students participate in the legacy mentoring program, which pairs students with an appropriate mentor in the Idaho legal field. It's the only law school based in Boise. 

“We encourage mentors and students to  participate in certain activities together, such as attending court hearings where the mentor is arguing in court or depositions,” Silak said. “The mentor relationship is really an effort to equate the students with reality of practice.”

That has helped the school post an employment rate far above what would normally be expected. For the Class of 2017, 91.67 percent landed legal jobs. The employment rate, combined with an aggressive grant program, helped the school earn a B+ for Best Value. That makes it one of the top private schools in the nation for value. 

The school is No 10 for most devout Christian law schools, and should see its star continue to rise now that it has full accreditation.
