OU Law enrolls approximately 500 students annually in its Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree programs. The John B. Turner LL.M. Program attracts students worldwide wishing to specialize in the college’s core areas: energy, natural resources and Native American law. Students also have the opportunity to earn joint degrees, travel abroad and gain practical experience through numerous clinics, competitions and legal publications at OU Law. They also provide valuable legal services to the public through the OU Legal Clinic and Students for Access to Justice.
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.
The University of Oklahoma College of Law is one of our nation’s great public law schools. Founded in 1909, OU Law provides a dynamic intellectual community dedicated to teaching, learning, research and service in the pursuit of law and justice. OU Law delivers an exemplary legal education at an accessible cost to students and is consistently recognized as a “Best Value” law school by National Jurist magazine.
