Therapy dogs return to OU Law

Throughout the next three weeks, OU Law will again be hosting therapy dogs for students to hang out and play with while studying for final exams at Coats Hall. The certified therapy dogs are provided by the organization A New Leash on Life. The dogs are visiting to help students cope with the stress of finals, and students should feel free to approach them, pet them, and play with them as they please. Each dog will be accompanied by a trainer at all times.

Students Travel to Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair

I had the honor at the end of October of traveling to the Washington, D.C., area with 10 law students who are interested in pursuing public interest careers.  We attended the annual Equal Justice Works Conference and Career Fair, where the students had the opportunity to network with 120 employers and like-minded students from across the country.  Of course, no trip to D.C. would be complete without some sightseeing.  On Saturday morning, we toured the East Wing of the White House.  While we were in the Red Room we were able to see President Obama exit the White House and board Marine One.
