On Monday, September 12, the Oklahoma International Law Society (OILS) hosted a luncheon for its members to kick off Fall International Law Week. The luncheon focused on a panel discussion regarding international law and affairs internship opportunities, and provided advice for students on how to apply for internships in this sector. Panelists were Professor Evelyn Aswad, and second year law students Janny Gandhi, Mackenzie Coplen, Abby Meadors Henderson, and Kellie Reidlinger who discussed their internships in a law firm in Dubai, a non-profit organization, the U.S. State Department, and the U.S. Senate.
OILS also sponsors the International Student Mentorship Program at OU Law, a program that selects OU Law students to serve as mentors for current international exchange students at OU Law. The international exchange students from Austria, China, Germany, Australia, and Pakistan met their OU Law mentors.

In Their Words: Bringing the Uniform Bar Exam to Oklahoma
