On August 14, 40 OU Law students volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for the third-annual OU Law Gives Back orientation event at the food bank. More than one-quarter of the entering first-year class participated. Students boxed 9,660 pounds of food in three hours, the equivalent of 7, 430 meals. OU Law Gives Back is organized each year by Students for Access to Justice, the student-driven pro bono and public interest group at the College of Law. This year's student coordinator was Harrison Kosmider ('14).
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is the largest, private anti-hunger organization in the state. It collects and distributes food to 1,000 local food banks, schools, and other partner agencies.
During 2011-12, OU Law students volunteered more than 12,000 pro bono hours in Oklahoma and across the country. One-half of the members of the Class of 2012 did pro bono work in law school, and 121 of the 155 members of the entering Class of 2015 have pledged to do pro bono work during the next three years.
