Diversity Section “Love the Law!” Program

Mission Statement

To develop and maintain a pipeline program that exposes Idaho high school, college, and university students from diverse, minority, and low-income backgrounds and underrepresented populations to the legal profession and encourages those students to consider pursuing a career in law. Love the Law! seeks to expand student knowledge about legal careers and pathways to the profession and to provide social support and professional role models. Through these efforts, Love the Law! will promote diversity, equality, and cultural understanding throughout the Idaho State Bar to better serve the State’s diverse citizenry.
