Pop Tabs for a Cause

They’re sprouting up all around the law school:  containers with labels asking people to deposit “pop tabs” from their cans.  You are probably wondering What could they possibly want with these?   Who’s behind the collection campaign?  Well, let us tell you.

This campaign to collect pop tabs is another step in the College of Law’s walk with Pros For Africa.  A formal collaboration between OU Law and PFA began in February 2011 and has allowed law students to travel to Uganda, Morocco, Zambia and to do summer externships in South Africa.

During one of the lectures during the Chinese Law Summer Program, Professor He Jiahong talked in-depth about the evolution of criminal procedure in China over the past 40 years. It was a lecture that was exemplary of why studying abroad is an amazing experience. That morning, I finally started to grasp part of the root of how our systems differ. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it, so bear with me as I speculate.

In America, we carry around the identity of our country within ourselves.

2012 Oxford Summer Program

I just returned from Oxford, and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was by far one of the best summers of my life.

I was drawn to the program because I had heard from many students who had gone previously say it was one of their favorite law school experiences. I have met people who graduated from OU 20 years ago who went to Oxford and still talk about how much they loved it. I knew I had to go.

I think one of the best things about Oxford is the sense of community.
