  • An overhead evaluation of the health of Southwest Idahoans.
  • Enrollment in law school on the rise.

- A law degree is useful for more than just litigating and enrollment in law schools is on the increase as people find a JD useful for getting into government service, public advocacy or simply expanding a skill set.
