In honor of his upcoming retirement, the OU College of Law is hosting Professor Stephen Knippenberg’s “Last Lecture” at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the Bell Courtroom.
During the event, Professor Knippenberg will present a “Last Lecture” to the OU Law community, followed by live music and dinner.
Professor Knippenberg is retiring after 29 years at OU Law. He joined the law faculty in 1990 and was named Floyd and Martha Norris Chair in Law in 2005. He teaches Commercial Law, Bankruptcy, and Contracts.
The concept of a Last Lecture was inspired by Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University, who, upon a terminal cancer diagnosis, presented a “last lecture” before his retirement. Since his passing in 2008, schools nationwide have held their own versions, allowing retiring scholars the opportunity to reflect, share their wit, and impart words of wisdom.
The event is open to the OU Law community. For more information or accommodations, call (405) 325-7479 or email email@example.com.

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.
