OU Law 2L Eric Strocen was named Student of the Month by the Southwest Regional Black Law Student Association at the beginning of October. The organization noted that Strocen “exhibits what it means to be an exceptional BLSA member.”
Since his first year of law school, Strocen has actively participated in BLSA activities, going above and beyond to ensure that the goals of the NBLSA are met by working with first-year law students, organizing study sessions and positioning himself as a mentor to aid the promotion of the BLSA legacy.
Strocen is also a member of the BLSA Thurgood Marshall Moot Court Team and will represent OU Law at their competition this January in New Orleans.
The Southwest Region of the BLSA includes law schools in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas.
