In Her Words: Why I Chose OU’s Legal Assistant Education Program
I did not have a cookie cutter journey to my decision to apply to the OU Law Center’s Legal Assistant Education Program or my career as a paralegal. As an undergrad, I planned to take the LSAT and enter law school immediately after graduation.

In His Words: A Life-Changing Four Weeks in China
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.
