OU Law was recently featured in National Jurist magazine as one of the nation’s top moot court programs.
Connie Smothermon, Director of Competitions, Assistant Director and Assistant Professor of Legal Research and Writing, and Director of Externships at OU Law, was interviewed in the story.
“Of course, we are excited about any success we have, but the reason we participate and spend time, effort and money to participate in these competitions is for the very fact that it builds skills in law students that are necessary to their success as lawyers,” Smothermon said.
The story also noted some of OU Law’s additional teaching tools, such as legal research and writing courses, which prepare students on how to approach complex legal issues by providing a solid foundation of basic advocacy skills. Additional skill-building workshops in research, writing and oral advocacy are available to members of the moot court team.
OU Law’s moot court program is currently ranked second in the nation, according to the latest Blakely Advocacy Institute’s annual rankings.
