Box 895, Boise, ID  83701.  Requests for materials will be handled in the order they are received and we will respond as quickly as possible.  Applicants who simply want to review these materials at the Law Center may make an appointment with the Director of Admissions, Maureen Ryan Braley.  Please note that the staff is not authorized to discuss or to give opinions about examination papers or the bar examination.
