The 2013-2014 competition season continues as OU Law students keep the winning tradition going. The Negotiation Team headed to the windy city to represent The University of Oklahoma College of Law in the ABA National Competition. Taylor Jones and Zack Ryan competed against 24 other teams in the national competition. The team advanced to the semi-final round at nationals as second seed finishing fifth overall. Congratulations to Taylor, Zack and their coach, Professor Erin Means.
Two OU Law teams competed in the Client Counseling regional competition hosted by the University of Missouri. Both teams advanced to the final round where Kaitlyn Schrick and Haleigh Collins placed 2nd and Lauren Mitcham and Jesse Muth placed 3rd. The two teams will now advance to the national competition which will be hosted by our own Board of Advocates. Nationals will be held March 21st and 22nd at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Professor Connie Smothermon coached the team up to ten days before competition when her husband Richard stepped in. Since she is on the National Client Counseling committee, she can only coach these teams until they get the competition prompts. Good luck at Nationals!

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.
