NORMAN — For the third consecutive year, the Blakely Advocacy Institute ranked the University of Oklahoma College of Law’s competition program as one of the top 15 in the nation.
“Four years ago, our remarkably talented students broke into the top 20 schools in the nation for moot court programs,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “Their initiative, combined with our dedicated faculty and alumni coaches, has resulted in four consecutive years of recognition as a top 20 school, with the last three of those in the top 15. They have worked tirelessly outside of the classroom to develop real-world lawyering skills that will serve them well beyond their time as students. We are immensely proud of their efforts.”
OU Law’s ranking qualifies the school for the prestigious Kurth Tournament of Champions, which is reserved for the top 16 schools in the country to compete for the Moot Court National Championship. The tournament is slated for January 2017 in Houston. This year, 75 OU Law students participated in 30 teams traveling across the country to more than 20 competitions.
In combination with OU Law’s status as a Top 20 Best Value Law School, and the college’s recent rise in the latest U.S. News and World Report rankings, the Blakely Advocacy Institute ranking demonstrates the OU College of Law is one of the nation’s leading public law schools.
