Meet the Class of 2015



Brice Beckwith

Perry, Oklahoma

1. Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Perry, Oklahoma.

2. Where did you attend undergrad?

I attended the University of Oklahoma.

3. What degree(s) have you earned?

I have a B.A. in English (writing).

4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?

I spent a lot of time (too much really) researching every morsel of data, statistic, ranking, forum and anything even remotely associated with law schools to objectively make the best decision I possibly could. However, in the end I felt that those I had talked to from OU Law would genuinely always have my best interests at heart, and that made the decision easier.

5. What is your favorite thing about OU?

At the risk of sounding redundant, it is the people that I most enjoy.

6. What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education?

I don't know if inspiration is the right word, but for me choosing to take this route was based on two factors. First, I live to read and write and, to some degree, argue. Second, for one reason or another, law has always interested me. My hope is that this direction will combine the skills I picked up in undergrad with those things that already hold my interest and passion.

7. What is an interesting fact about you?

Someday I would really like to own a biplane and to learn how to pilot that plane. Also, I really wouldn't mind learning to tap dance.
