The OU College of Law proudly announces that the following students from the Class of 2018 have been inducted into the National Order of Scribes:
- Connor Bourland
- Gerard D’Emilio
- Hannah Roberts
- Mason Smith
- Alex Sokolosky
Scribes is a national organization of legal writers dedicated to the following goals:
1) to foster a feeling of fraternity among those who write about the law — and especially among its members;
2) to create an interest in writing about the history, philosophy, and language of the law and about those who make, interpret, and enforce it;
3) to help and encourage people who write about the law; and
4) above all, to promote a clear, succinct, and forceful style in legal writing.
The National Order of Scribes was created by Scribes in 2007 as an honorary organization to recognize graduating law students who excel in legal writing. Membership is limited to the top 3% of graduating students.
Congratulations to our Scribes inductees!

In Their Words: Bringing the Uniform Bar Exam to Oklahoma
Last summer, my classmate Trae Havens and I were privileged to serve Oklahoma by interning with the office of Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice James Winchester. Throughout the summer, we worked on a variety of different research projects, such as writing draft opinions and organizing files for oral arguments, but the most important thing we did was research for the potential adoption of the Uniform Bar Exam, or UBE, in Oklahoma.
