Why did you choose to attend OU Law?
The OU Law community demonstrated their commitment to helping each student individually reach their highest potential. While OU Law excels in producing graduates who succeed on the bar exam (95% bar passage rate in 2019) and get a job (97% employment rate for the Class of 2019), what really sets OU Law apart is that we are dedicated to helping you become a leader in your community. I chose OU Law because they invested their efforts in helping me fulfill my dreams. I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to help create the next generation of Sooner lawyers who will lead and change the world.
