Applications being accepted for the Fourth District Citizens’ Law Academy

Attention: Boise State Pre-Law Society, Boise State Criminal Justice, Boise State Political Science, Boise State Public Policy and Administration, and Boise State History Departments:

Applications are now online for the Fourth District Citizens’ Law Academy, which is a free 12-week course offered to increase public understanding of the American legal system. This is a great course for pre-law students and those students who want to learn more about the legal system in this country and our state. Participants of Citizens’ Law Academy finish the program with a better understanding of how the system works, the laws affecting their daily lives, their rights under the law, and the ethical standards by which judges and attorneys must conduct themselves. Over the course of the 12 weeks, participants will hear from several judges and attorneys who each present on a different aspect of the legal system.

Classes are held in Boise and meet Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm from September 4 through November 13. Organizers hope for a variety of student perspectives and encourage anyone 18 and older from the Treasure Valley area who wants to learn more about Idaho law and the American legal system to sign up. Registration forms will be accepted through August 17. Space is limited. For more information and an application, visit http://isb.idaho.gov/ilf/lre/cla.html.

For more information about Citizens’ Law Academy, contact Carey Shoufler, Law Related Education Director, at 208.334.4500 or cshoufler@isb.idaho.gov.
