My experience in OU Law’s Legal Assistant Program was life changing. After graduating from college, I started working in sales and quickly realized that it was not a career I was passionate about. My wife, an attorney and recent graduate from OU Law, and I discussed this realization. She told me about the legal assistant program, and it immediately interested me. I applied and the program coordinator immediately reached out to me and answered all my questions about the program.
Although I was nervous and it was my first day back in a classroom in years, the second I walked through the OU Law Center’s doors, it was nothing short of amazing. The instructors and staff were beyond helpful and supportive; the other students were friendly; and the facility was phenomenal. Getting back in the classroom with welcoming students and instructors was unexpected yet refreshing. I looked forward to going to class on Saturdays to connect with my peers and continue to learn about the law. Even during COVID, class formats changed, but the helpfulness and supportiveness of the instructors and staff remained constant.
I have been working as a legal assistant for over a year now and use the skills I learned in the legal assistant program on a daily basis. The program prepared me to assist attorneys and excel in my career. Above all, the program taught me that this career requires attention-to-detail and a willingness to learn and adapt. I am so thankful that I took the plunge and enrolled in OU’s legal assistant program. It set me on a career path that I am passionate and excited about.
