Are you a dog-lover? Do you need a short break from studies to de-stress a little? During the next two weeks, there will be therapy dogs in the building from an organization called “A New Leash on Life.” The dogs are here for your relaxation and enjoyment. Feel free to approach them, pet them, and hang out with them as you like. Each dog will be accompanied by a trainer at all times, and all of the dogs are certified therapy dogs. You will be able to identify the dogs by a red bandana that says “therapy dog,” and each trainer will be wearing ID, as well. This service is being provided at no cost to the College of Law, and there is no charge to students who choose to use their services.
Where the Dogs WILL Be: Each trainer/dog team will have a home base. One team will be located in the southwest seating area of the Kerr Student Lounge on the lower level, and they will wander some in the student lounge. The other team will be located in the Library near the reference desk, and they will wander some on the first floor of the library and the atrium.
Where the Dogs Will NOT Be: The dogs will not be in the classrooms, and they will not be on the second floor of the library. Please also note that all dogs are bathed 24 hours before arriving to reduce dander. In general, the teams are trained not to approach individuals unless the individual indicates approval.
Schedule: Here are the dates and times when the dogs will be in the building.

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.
