OKLAHOMA CITY – On Jan. 30, the 155 members of the University of Oklahoma College of Law’s first-year class will gather with leading lawyers and recognized experts on professionalism. OU Law’s Office of Professional and Career Development (OPCD) presents Professionalism Night 5:45 to 8 p.m. at Devon Tower, in a banquet room on the 50th floor, in downtown Oklahoma City.
At this event, McAfee & Taft lawyers will present important topics such as business etiquette, professional dress and professionalism in the workplace. The evening will also include a networking session for the students.
“We created this event as part of our efforts to educate the next generation of lawyers on the critical importance of professionalism,” OU Law Dean Joe Harroz said. “In addition to teaching our students the substantive knowledge required to practice law, we want students to understand the importance of always presenting themselves with the highest degree of integrity and ability in the practice of law. We appreciate McAfee & Taft, who helped make this evening possible.”
Professionalism Night is part of OPCD’s comprehensive programming to prepare OU Law students for the job market. Employer participation in OPCD’s on-campus interview program tripled in 2012.

What lead you to OU Law? As was permitted at the time, my first year at OU Law in 1956 was as an undergraduate senior at OU. I never questioned where I would go to law school. I was our family’s second generation to go to OU law school. We are now a five-generation family to do so. My dad and his identical twin brother, Ralph, were OU Law graduates, class of 1927. My grandfather, Dr. William Bennett Bizzell, was OU’s 5 th president. OU was a second home to me.
