The Resolution Process is set forth in Idaho Bar Commission Rule 906. Resolutions may be submitted by a District Bar Association, the Board of Commissioners, a Bar committee, or an individual member of the Bar. Resolutions submitted by a District Bar Association, the Board of Commissioners, or the Idaho Supreme Court are automatically included in the resolution process. Ballots are due in the Law Center by December 4th, 2023 by 5 p.m.
At their February 2023 meeting, the Idaho State Bar Board of Commissioners approved a four-stage phase-out plan for the Desk Book Directory.
Phase One began this year by introducing a new “Rules-Only” book for new admittees.
Phase Two will be in Spring 2024 and will consist of a switch to affirmative opt-in only to receive the hard copy of the Directory. If you wish to receive a hard copy of the 2024-2025 Desk Book Directory, you must affirmatively opt-in. An email will be sent to you with this option in March 2024.
The Rule Book, which is a truncated version of the Directory including only the relevant sets of rules, will be offered as an alternative in Phase Two.
Please be on the lookout for more information in the coming months!

The Women’s Law Caucus is excited to announce this fantastic event! The WLC is especially excited that all speakers are alums of the University of Idaho College of Law. All will be in person except Retired Magistrate Judge Linda Cook and Idaho Supreme Court Justice Colleen Zahn, who will appear via Zoom. University of Idaho College of Law Dean Johanna Kalb will be making introductory remarks.
Each speaker will address progress made in law school, the laws, and in practice from the decade when she joined the Idaho State Bar and what still needs to be improved:
- Retired Magistrate Judge and first woman judge in Idaho Linda Cook and Family Law Attorney Anne Solomon: 1970s.
- Environmental Lawyer Cyndy Day-Wilson: 1980s.
- Magistrate Judge and former U.S. Attorney Michelle Mallard: 1990s.

There will be a reception after the panel for meeting the panelists and networking.
