The University of Oklahoma College of Law welcomed the Oklahoma judiciary on Wednesday, July 17, for the opening day of the 2013 Oklahoma Judicial Conference.
The statewide association of judges and justices serving Oklahoma's state courts meets each year to provide education and training of members of the judicial branch of state government. The association also analyzes the needs of trial courts, often sharing their findings with the state Supreme Court and Legislature.
“As the state’s flagship law college, it was truly an honor to serve as a host for this year’s state judicial conference,” OU Law Dean Joe Harroz said. “Oklahoma has outstanding judges who, along with their staffs, provide an incredible service to our state and nation. We are fortunate to have such talented and committed jurists. It was our privilege to host them for their opening reception.”
At the OU Law Center, judges heard presentations on a number of topics, including civil and criminal court case studies, digital forensics and retirement choices for judges. The day’s events closed with a reception in the Sneed Lounge and Boren Atrium that was sponsored by OU Law and the Cleveland County Bar Association.
“With OU Law in my backyard, I am grateful for the strong working relationship that I have with the College and Dean Harroz,” said former conference president and Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley. “The opening seminars and reception were a tremendous success, and we are grateful to the College for hosting the Oklahoma judiciary.”
