The University of Oklahoma College of Law has retained an outstanding full-time law faculty to provide our students with an unequalled legal education experience. Combined with the numerous adjunct specialists who teach various subjects from the practitioner's point of view, we have assembled an exceptional instructional corps.
We are so appreciative of the support OU College of Law receives from donors. Their support enhances our academic and scholarship programs, allowing OU Law to provide a quality legal education at a reasonable cost.
When I meet with alumni, I am always amazed to discover how many have never made it back to Norman. While I encourage you to come tour the campus (you won’t believe the changes!), I am equally as eager to come visit you in your hometowns. I hope to see you at an upcoming alumni event.
