Choosing The University of Oklahoma College of Law for my exchange year and staying to earn an LL.M. were both life-changing decisions. From the moment I sent the application in 2012 until graduating in 2014, OU Law surpassed every expectation. The College of Law LL.M. program provided me with the knowledge necessary to take and pass the bar exam along with the skills necessary to face various legal challenges after graduation
The opportunities for concentrating in a vast array of legal fields such as Energy law, Contracts, Indian Law, International Law and Human Rights are unsurpassed by any law school that I know of.
As an international student and later a degree-seeking student, the Introduction to the American Legal System and Introduction to Legal Writing courses were extremely helpful in understanding U.S. legal work and system. The professor teaches the classes with great knowledge, skills, enthusiasm and respect for the students and their backgrounds by involving the students, and allowing for comparison to other legal cultures and opening for discussion.
The college of Law has an outstanding faculty that has no other objective than to see their students succeed and do well. I remember researching a legal matter and all I had to do was knock on the professor’s door, explain the issue and the professor applied his resources providing additional sources of law and invaluable support.
I particularly enjoyed the “Lunch and Learn” sessions where a speaker came in during lunch and gave a presentation of his or her job. The same with the various expeditions to NAPE in Houston and the AIPN spring conference in Austin.
In addition, OU Law provides first class facilities. From the spacious library where there is never any issue finding a desk to the Amicus Cafe fresh coffee is available all day, the College of Law made it easy for me to focus on my education.
I did not graduate from OU Law knowing merely a lot of different “laws”. The College of Law provided expertise in working effectively, professionally and with high integrity, as is required of legal professionals. However, none of this came without putting in a solid effort. I can recommend OU Law to anyone who is determined to succeed in their legal education and is willing to work hard.
