Boise’s Concordia Law School graduates its first group of students Saturday. The school, which is three years old, just received provisional accreditation in June.
Graduate Blake Echols transferred to Concordia for his second year of law school. He says the fact that the institution wasn’t accredited when he started didn’t bother him.
“I got opportunities here that I probably wouldn’t have had elsewhere," says Echols, "it being a new school, it being a much smaller school.”
