In past years, when I studied in China, Italy and Israel, I became interested in a law program that would teach energy and natural resource classes, and I searched several schools who had these classes. At the beginning of 2011, OU law school announced that it would open a new LL.M. program, adding to the school’s 100-year history a new academic experience: an LL.M. focusing on natural resource and energy issues. I applied immediately.
The OU law faculty is very nice and extremely helpful to the LL.M. students. With their help, I got a private scholarship from an international organization. They offered us several course combinations to meet different needs. For example, since I came from China, I will take an International Arbitration course in the spring. This course will be more than helpful in my future career.
Besides the regular courses, the faculty also helped me adjust to American life: improving my English, driving me around the campus and inviting me to their houses to have dinner.
Our LL.M. program, meanwhile, gave us opportunities to learn about American petroleum industry history and status quo. We have visited some small towns and will visit Houston in February.
To future OU students, I say, “Welcome to OU law school! You will get more than you expect!”

I have never eaten a spicier meal than the hot pot I had with new friends from other law schools in Indiana and Peru after we explored the Summer Palace in Beijing. We put strips of raw chicken, beef, pork, tripe, and vegetables into the boiling pot of broth our waitress set at the table, cooking them quickly before dipping them in a delicious sauce.
