NORMAN – University of Oklahoma College of Law Dean Joseph Harroz announced today the establishment of the Oklahoma Scholars Fund, the college's largest scholarship fund for Oklahoma residents.

"The Oklahoma Scholars Fund will allow us to recruit and retain outstanding Oklahomans pursuing Juris Doctorate and Master of Laws degrees at OU," Harroz said. "This gift enhances our ability to keep Oklahoma talent in state and provide Oklahoma students the opportunity to obtain one of the top public legal educations in the nation."
