OU Law enrolls approximately 500 students annually in its Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree programs. The John B. Turner LL.M. Program attracts students worldwide wishing to specialize in the college’s core areas: energy, natural resources and Native American law. Students also have the opportunity to earn joint degrees, travel abroad and gain practical experience through numerous clinics, competitions and legal publications at OU Law. They also provide valuable legal services to the public through the OU Legal Clinic and Students for Access to Justice.
The University of Oklahoma College of Law has retained an outstanding full-time law faculty to provide our students with an unequalled legal education experience. Combined with the numerous adjunct specialists who teach various subjects from the practitioner's point of view, we have assembled an exceptional instructional corps.
We are so appreciative of the support OU College of Law receives from donors. Their support enhances our academic and scholarship programs, allowing OU Law to provide a quality legal education at a reasonable cost.
When I meet with alumni, I am always amazed to discover how many have never made it back to Norman. While I encourage you to come tour the campus (you won’t believe the changes!), I am equally as eager to come visit you in your hometowns. I hope to see you at an upcoming alumni event.
The University of Oklahoma College of Law is one of our nation’s great public law schools. Founded in 1909, OU Law provides a dynamic intellectual community dedicated to teaching, learning, research and service in the pursuit of law and justice. OU Law delivers an exemplary legal education at an accessible cost to students and is consistently recognized as a “Best Value” law school by National Jurist magazine.

Gordon, C.E.O. for the national nonprofit organization Dress for Success Worldwide, shares how she earned a law degree and, later, landed a high-profile dream job—all with a state school education (and no student loan debt).
For my Caribbean family, college was the golden ticket.
Sports agent and OU Law alumna Kelli Masters ('99) spoke to students in the Sports Entertainment Law Society (SELS) today.
Masters, who also was the featured twirler for the Sooners and earned her Bachelor's degree in Journalism from OU, is now a registered sports agent. She serves as President of Kelli Masters Management, and is Of Counsel with the law firm of Fellers, Snider, Blankenship, Bailey & Tippens, P.C.
Among the experiences she shared with students was what it was like to have one of her clients become a first-round draft pick in the National Football League.
Students at OU Law have more choices than ever before, including what kind of degree they will earn.
Juris doctor students now have the option of pursuing a specialized certificate contained within their three-year degree. Other students are now able to earn an entirely new degree at OU Law, the Master of Legal Studies, which requires a shorter time commitment.
Specialized Certificates for J.D. The specialized certificates are in Energy Law, Natural Resources Law, American Indian Law or Business Entrepreneurship.

Both Oklahoma City and the University of Oklahoma were highlighted in a recent article, 7 Cities Where Millenials Can Still Live the American Dream, by PolicyMic.
The article notes, "Oklahoma City has an unemployment rate of 4.5% and an average rent price of $707/month. With a population of close to 520,000 there are numerous opportunities for millennials. OKC is also home to the University of Oklahoma and other colleges. It is home to four professional sports teams and its downtown area, known as Bricktown, has become a cultural beacon of its own."
