The LL.M. Experience at OU Law School

In past years, when I studied in China, Italy and Israel, I became interested in a law program that would teach energy and natural resource classes, and I searched several schools who had these classes. At the beginning of 2011, OU law school announced that it would open a new LL.M. program, adding to the school’s 100-year history a new  academic experience: an LL.M. focusing on natural resource and energy issues. I applied immediately.

The OU law faculty is very nice and extremely helpful to the LL.M. students.


OU Law Volunteers Will Do Your Tax Return for FREE!

If your income was below $50,000 for the past year, members of the OU College of Law Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will complete your tax return for free.  Just bring a valid ID (preferably a social security card) for you and your dependents and all supporting tax documents to the Norman Public Library any Wednesday or Thursday before April 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. and the IRS-certified tax preparers will be happy to assist you.

The VITA program started in 2006.


Four students awarded national scholarships

The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation (RMMLF) recently awarded scholarships to University of Oklahoma College of Law students Frances Agbebaku, Austin Brewer, Ensieh Mohajeri and Haley Rader for their potential to make a significant contribution to the field of natural resources law. 

The students made up four of 20 national recipients and will receive financial assistance for the spring 2012 semester. Of the $64,000 awarded, the students accounted for $15,000.
