In past years, when I studied in China, Italy and Israel, I became interested in a law program that would teach energy and natural resource classes, and I searched several schools who had these classes. At the beginning of 2011, OU law school announced that it would open a new LL.M. program, adding to the school’s 100-year history a new academic experience: an LL.M. focusing on natural resource and energy issues. I applied immediately.
The OU law faculty is very nice and extremely helpful to the LL.M. students. With their help, I got a private scholarship from an international organization. They offered us several course combinations to meet different needs. For example, since I came from China, I will take an International Arbitration course in the spring. This course will be more than helpful in my future career.
Besides the regular courses, the faculty also helped me adjust to American life: improving my English, driving me around the campus and inviting me to their houses to have dinner.
Our LL.M. program, meanwhile, gave us opportunities to learn about American petroleum industry history and status quo. We have visited some small towns and will visit Houston in February.
To future OU students, I say, “Welcome to OU law school! You will get more than you expect!”
