Facilities

At the OU College of Law, you will learn, research, study, and socialize in modern, state-of-the-art facilities, including high-tech classrooms, collaboration spaces, clinics, and courtrooms.

Inasmuch Foundation Collaborative Learning Center

Hands-on, High-tech

The Inasmuch Collaborative Learning Center (CLC), located in the Donald E. Pray Law Library, cultivates teamwork. The 8,000-square-foot space opened in 2016, thanks to a $1.5 million gift from Inasmuch Foundation. The Inasmuch CLC features cooperative learning spaces complete with virtual reality stations, multimedia study rooms, collaborative workstations, and plenty of plugs and ports for your personal devices. A “genius station” offers students access to research and IT professionals.

Research and Resources

The Donald E. Pray Law Library is the hub of research and collaboration at OU Law. Here, students, faculty, attorneys, and members of the public can access major legal databases and an extensive catalog of print and electronic offerings.

The law library also houses an array of special collections including the Native American Constitution and Law Digitization Project. Vaulted ceilings, rich wood paneling, and a large, arched window make for a bright, comfortable, professional atmosphere in the Chapman Reading Room and throughout the library.

Andrew M. Coats Hall

Our home is Andrew M. Coats Hall, located just south of OU’s main campus. This 170,000-square-foot complex houses everything you’ll need, from faculty and administrative offices to classrooms and lounges. In addition to the Donald E. Pray Law Library and the Inasmuch Collaborative Learning Center, the OU College of Law has several other spaces you’ll use frequently:

Dick Bell Courtroom

The 250-seat Dick Bell Courtroom is one of the largest and most technologically advanced courtrooms in the nation. In fact, many state and federal courts have held appellate trials here, including the Oklahoma Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals.

With a reconfigurable bench, jury and chamber rooms, closed-circuit cameras, sound-proof observation rooms, and resources for multimedia presentations, this simulation courtroom provides students a premier place to practice lawyering skills.

Thanks to its ample seating, Bell Courtroom also hosts lectures, meetings, and moot court competitions.

Robert S. Kerr, Jr. Student Lounge

The Kerr Lounge is always bustling with activity. Students flock here to study, relax, and hang out with friends. One day you may find yourself sitting in the audience for a lunch-time lecture, and the next you’ll be curled up with your iPad on one of our cozy couches.

Earl M. Sneed Faculty Lounge

Often referred to as the “living room” of OU Law, the Earl M. Sneed Faculty Lounge offers an intimate environment for meetings, luncheons, and other get-togethers.

David L. Boren Atrium

The David L. Boren Atrium, named for OU’s 13th president and a 1968 OU Law alumnus, is a bright and airy place to relax or study.

Amicus Café

Amicus, located on the first floor of the Law Center, offers soups, sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, and a daily hot, home-style meal. In addition to providing a convenient spot for your daily coffee or lunch, Amicus is a gathering hub for a variety of events, including Oxford-style Pub Nights for the entire OU Law community. The wood trim and warm tones in the café blend with the overall law school atmosphere. Amicus also features a lounge area and moveable tables, making it a perfect spot to hold a study session or meeting.

Facilities by the numbers.
