What is your favorite thing about OU Law?
My favorite thing about OU Law is how it really is one big family. While it might sound cliche, OU Law truly is unlike any other law school out there. Professors know not only your name but who you are as a person which gives them the ability to invest their time into you in an individualized way. There are also many different ways to get involved and meet people on and off campus. For example, there are about 40 different student organizations. They will put on a mulititude of events including tailgates (Boomer Sooner!) before football games, student appreciation weeks, HalLAWeen parties, Law Prom, and intramurals. Law school is already stressful enough so it's amazing to see how much time and effort goes into making sure that everyone becomes part of the OU Law community!
