Travels Abroad

One of the best parts of my Oxford experience was the opportunity to explore new cultures through traveling both before and during the program. A group of friends and I decided to plan a trip to Italy before commencement of classes in Oxford. After flying into London and dropping off most of our luggage with a section-mate’s very generous parents, we hopped right back on a plane to Italy.

After an overnight stop in Milan, and our first of many experiences with the European phenomenon know as “trains”, we found ourselves on the beautiful Italian Riviera.


Oxford 2011 with Dean Deanell Tacha

“It’s not often you get to hear from a rock star of the legal profession.” This is how Deanell Tacha, current dean of Pepperdine University School of Law and former chief judge of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, was introduced by her former law clerk, OU Professor Steven Gensler. Little did we know how right he was.

Dean Tacha has had a legal career most can only dream of. After graduating from the University of Kansas, she received her juris doctor degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
