College students in southern Idaho wishing to study law won’t have to travel quite as far now.  There was a ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday for the Concordia University School of Law and the George R. White Law Library in Boise.

Construction began in June 2010 on the existing building, and included an addition of  33,000 square-feet.   In January, Concordia announced a $1 million gift from Boise philanthropist and business leader George R. White.  The building is now complete and Concordia University School of Law will welcome its inaugural class of students in fall 2012.
