Ways to Give

Your support furthers our mission and makes a legal education possible. OU Law has created annual giving societies designed to create opportunities for giving at all levels for our alumni and friends.

Dean's Leadership Circle

The Dean’s Leadership Circle offers the law school dean resources to take advantage of exciting opportunities for faculty and students and to support innovative programs that will enhance the legal education provided by the OU College of Law. 

The funds raised through this giving society will be used to provide fellowships that allow students to work for public interest organizations, create innovative programs such as the international Human Rights Clinic and send members of OU’s legal teams to annual competitions. These programs help strengthen the quality of legal education and allow our students to gain an upper hand as they enter the job market.  

Members of the Dean’s Leadership Circle receive regular updates from Dean Harroz about how the funds are being used, receive an invitation to an annual dinner event with student recipients and are recognized in the College’s digital donor display.

Join the Dean's Leadership Circle

We ask those interested in joining the Dean’s Leadership Circle to make a contribution of $5,000 and strongly consider a three-year commitment.

Second Century Scholarship Society

Although the OU College of Law has been able to keep its tuition rates relatively low, tuition has steadily increased over the years, making it more and more difficult for students to obtain a legal education. About two-thirds of OU Law students take out loans to pay the costs of their legal education, which increasingly affects the choices they make upon graduation. 

Therefore, the College of Law has increased its focus on scholarships in hopes of increasing the number of scholarships available to students.  By increasing the number of scholarships available, it gives us a competitive edge in recruiting top students, reducing the amount of college loan debt that students take on and ensures our students pursue their dreams, not just work to pay off debt.

Join the Second Century Scholarship Society

The goal of the Second Century Scholarship Society is to secure scholarships of $1500 each year. Members will be asked to consider a three-year commitment.

OU Law Society

The OU Law Society is the heart and soul of annual giving at OU Law. This yearly membership organization supports the College of Law’s general fund. In addition, this organization provides alumni and friends of the college an opportunity to participate in networking events, including happy hours, luncheons and an annual reception and dinner. 

Members of The OU Law Society play a vital role on campus as well. The Society’s active presence allows students the opportunity to connect with alumni, while demonstrating to students the importance of giving back. The Society provides students with snacks during finals and includes graduating third years in events, to assist in the transition from student to alumni.

Annual membership fees for graduates out three years or less is $50 and $150 for all other alumni. Click here to make a gift and join The OU Law Society.

Planned Giving

Bequests and other planned gifts have a lasting impact on teaching, research and scholarships at The University of Oklahoma College of Law.  We have a number of alumni who are benefiting from life income gifts, gift annuities and other plans.  This type of gift allows you to make a gift now or after your lifetime while experiencing financial benefits for yourself and loved ones.  Through planned giving, you can endow faculty chairs and scholarships, create and sustain innovative programing, or expand on library resources.  You may choose to select an area of interest important to you, or allow your gift to fund key priorities determined by the College of Law leadership.
