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.

Nicholson, after his early graduation from The University of Oklahoma College of Law in December of 2001, and admission to the Oklahoma Bar in 2002, began working with a large oil & gas firm. Nicholson used his outstanding research and writing skills to help settle multi-million dollar oil & gas litigation.
In the fall of 2002 Nicholson was offered the opportunity to return to the College of Law to help implement a new legal research & writing program and be part of a team of professional legal research and writing instructors. Nicholson enjoys teaching the components that are critical to the ethical and competent practice of law. Nicholson strives to offer classes that allow students to tap into their abilities, develop important legal skills, and ultimately learn how to articulate their thoughts and ideas on the law.
