With fundraising on track and a student fee increase all but a done deal, the University of Idaho hopes to start offering third-year law classes in Boise this fall without state financial support. UI College of Law Dean Donald Burnett said the only remaining hurdle is what the American Bar Association calls "acquiescence." The process is designed to ensure expanded programs in different locations don't detract from a law school's home location. "We're going to go ahead, subject to the ABA's acquiescence," Burnett said. The new approach is a dramatically scaled-back version of the law school's original plan to open a full three-year branch in Boise that would focus on business and commercial law/Joel Mills, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Do you support this move by UIdaho to offer third-year law classes in Boise? Or is the university's law school spreading itself too thin?
