After hours of answering grueling bar exam questions on July 24 and 25, OU Law students exited the testing room at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum to see a few familiar faces standing in front of Dining on Persimmon Hill restaurant across the hall. OU Law Dean Joe Harroz, Assistant Dean Scott Palk, OPCD Director Casey Delaney and Alumni Relations Director Raegan King greeted them with sympathetic smiles, encouraging words and a free lunch.
“We all remember how difficult taking the bar exam was,” Dean Palk said. “With so much preparation and focus required for this test, we wanted to make the lunch break as easy and enjoyable as possible for our students.”
The OU Law Society sponsored lunch with the OU College of Law for alumni on both days of the exam in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, feeding a total of about 130 alumni each day. The 2012 lunch was so successful that OU Law staff members have already made plans to provide lunch again for alumni in 2013.
2011 graduate and OU Law Society member Christa Evans suggested the idea to OU Law staff after last year’s exam.
“There aren’t many places to eat around the testing facility,” Evans said. “I thought this would be a great way for the OU Law community to show those taking the bar exam that we care.”
