Brian Utsey

J.D. '05, LL.M. '06

Brian Utsey (J.D. ’05, LL.M. ’06) said he was drawn to The University of Tulsa College of Law because of its Indian Law program and the Native American Law Center. However, it was the people here that showed he was making the right choice. Utsey said the faculty and staff were so warm he could tell he would actually be treated as a person while attending as a student, as opposed to just being another faceless number.

Utsey took advantage of several opportunities during his education, including: studying abroad in Geneva, getting hands-on experience with real people and real cases at the Boesche Legal Clinic, and serving as president of the Native American Law Student Association. As a student, he was honored with the colleges Outstanding LL.M. Student award and was inducted into the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honors Fraternity.

Utsey is currently an attorney with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Legal Services Offices.
