The proposal that’s been languishing to add a second year to the University of Idaho’s law school program in Boise – which now includes only the third year of law school – has won the endorsement of Gov. Butch Otter. He called on lawmakers in his State of the State message to approve the expansion; lawmakers greeted the proposal with applause.
“We also must continue investing in the strong collaborative relationship between our universities and the Center for Advanced Energy Studies,” Otter said. “That’s why my budget calls for adding $1 million to our annual investment in that facility, which consistently yields incredible returns and value to Idaho’s asset portfolio.”
