The John B. Turner LL.M. Program offers a unique combination of courses, available only at OU, and allows students to choose from three specializations: Energy and Natural Resources, Indigenous Peoples Law, or U.S. Legal Studies (for foreign-educated lawyers).
OU Law provides LL.M. students outstanding opportunities such as studying in the classroom with world class faculty and juris doctor students and attending guest lectures, field trips, social events, and networking opportunities. LL.M. students may also receive credit for related courses offered by other OU departments.
Legendary professors including Richard Hemingway, Drew Kershen, Peter Krug, Victor Kulp, Eugene Kuntz, Maurice Merrill, Joe Rarick, and Rennard Strickland have made the OU Law a national leader in energy, natural resources, and indigenous peoples. Professors who continue this tradition include Owen Anderson (oil and gas law, oil and gas contracts and tax, international petroleum law and transactions), Monica Ehrman, joining the faculty Fall 2013 (Energy Law), Taiawagi Helton (environmental law and Indian natural resources law), Joyce Palomar (land tenure security law, real estate development law, and land use law), Lindsay Robertson (Indian law, indigenous peoples law, human rights law), and Murray Tabb (environmental law). In addition, the college is fortunate to have several distinguished adjunct and visiting professors who teach highly specialized classes in this program area.
