Blessed is the term I would choose when describing the education I received from The University of Oklahoma College of Law. As a Fulbright Scholar, I was able to pursue my Masters of Law in Energy and Natural Resources from the College of Law. While working for the national oil company of Pakistan, I was well aware of the programs being offered in energy law by OU Law. I had high expectations of this program however, I can say my experience far exceeded my expectations.
Part of this is due to the friendly and knowledgeable faculty and staff and the unique opportunities I was able to take advantage of. I drafted a research paper on the shale and gas resources of Pakistan, witnessed live cases pertaining to oil and gas companies at Oklahoma Corporation Commission, attended NAPE exhibitions, visited the oil and gas fields and attended a range of seminars on recent developments in the oil and gas fields and careers in this industry.
I am now back at my company in Pakistan. Thank you to my education, I am confident in my ability to handle any legal situation or policy referred to me. OU Law equipped me with all the necessary skills and research methodologies expected of an oil and gas attorney.
Besides the above academic strengths, I have loved being a part of larger University of Oklahoma Community. The campus life, academic resources and the health facilities were excellent in terms of the services provided versus the overall costs.
I would strongly endorse The University of Oklahoma College of Law. I would encourage anyone who is contemplating or interested in pursuing an LLM degree in Energy Law, they should make OU Law their first and foremost choice. It is second to none.

In Their Words: Bringing the Uniform Bar Exam to Oklahoma
Last summer, my classmate Trae Havens and I were privileged to serve Oklahoma by interning with the office of Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice James Winchester. Throughout the summer, we worked on a variety of different research projects, such as writing draft opinions and organizing files for oral arguments, but the most important thing we did was research for the potential adoption of the Uniform Bar Exam, or UBE, in Oklahoma.
