Congrats to OU BLSA Chapter on an Outstanding Year

January 31, 2013 | By Professor Connie Smothermon, Director of Competitions

CONGRATULATIONS to BLSA Frederick Douglass Moot Court team members Graham Boone and Courtney Hilliard!  The team won 2nd place at the regional competition in Dallas last weekend.  This qualifies them for the national finals in Atlanta, Georgia in early March.  The team also won Best Petitioner’s Brief.  This was quite a feat considering the difficulties we had submitting the brief the day after Thanksgiving!   

Additionally, our OU BLSA chapter won Chapter of the Year and Best Program of the Year.  Congratulations to Jared Gaither, President of our BLSA chapter, and all the BLSA officers and members.   

And, a special congrats to Professor Cheryl Wattley who is the BLSA chapter and team sponsor.    

Thank you to everyone who worked with this team during the semester break.  Look for more opportunities as they prepare for Nationals!

OU Law Conversations: Dean Emeritus Andrew Coats

What led you to OU Law? I have wanted to go to law school since I was a teenager. I was active in speech contests and enjoyed making oral presentations. When I was in high school, I would go downtown and watch some of the trials at the courthouse, so, I got acquainted with the courtroom rather early. I obtained a Navy scholarship to go to OU. I was a regular Navy midshipman then I served three years in the far east before coming back to law school. I wanted to attend law school and came back to OU.

OU Law Conversations: Robert Barnes

What led you to OU Law? OU Law has been part of my family since the 1920s. My great uncle was Dr. Maurice Merrill, a 1922 graduate of OU Law who then earned a Doctorate in Law from Harvard University in 1925. Merrill taught at OU Law for 30 years, published numerous seminal works in oil and gas law, constitutional law, administrative law and the law of Notice. While still in his twenties, Merrill published the seminal treatise Implied Covenants in Oil and Gas Law, which has been a cornerstone of my cases. In law school, I lived with Uncle Maurice and marveled at his longhand scrawl which was literally final copy in its first draft form. In my mind, he will always be ten times the lawyer that I ever became.
