When students enter through the OU Legal Clinic Doors, the real world begins.
Students who have had clinical or field experiences develop clearer career goals and are better prepared for learning on their own and working effectively with others. OU College of Law offers a variety of placement activities to its students. These “learning by experience” opportunities maximize the benefits of hands-on learning because of the faculty guidance that is provided. The placements help students apply the classroom lessons to the practice of law. Through weekly journaling, students reflect on their experiences, quickly realizing that the work that they are doing is valuable, energizing, and instructive.
