Law Curriculum for the 21st Century
A law school must offer classes, programs and experiences that prepare students to be attorneys.
Centers of Excellence
Sustainable Energy and Resources Law Program and REEL Certificate Program
You will learn how to strike a balance between material abundance and environmental protection through teaching, research, scholarship, publications and effective communication about energy and the environment.
Native American Law Center and Certificate Program
You will learn about the unique problems of the tribes and their members. You will also be trained in appropriate methods to resolve disputes before they become irreconcilable.
Certificate Programs and Areas of Concentration
You will find a myriad of opportunities for an extraordinary legal education at Tulsa Law. You will have a chance to broaden your horizons. A law school should look beyond its borders for opportunities.
Recognizing the impact of an evolving global economy, we have instituted a study abroad program featuring credit courses in the United Kingdom and Europe:
We offer you the opportunity to expand your knowledge. A law school should help its students prepare for a variety of career choices.
You will gain experience beyond the classroom. A law school should acquaint its students with the law first-hand. Tulsa law students have the opportunity to gain practical experience through legal and judicial internships as well as in the College's legal clinic. As a Tulsa Law student, you might also serve on one of the College's three student-run legal journals.
Legal Clinic Programs
Student Law Journals
Energy Law Journal, a joint project of NELPI and the Energy Bar Association, has a circulation of over 2,400 and about 150 foreign subscriptions.
Tulsa Law Review, the official general-interest publication of the College of Law, is a quarterly publication that features articles of interest to legal practitioners and scholars. Its annual Mineral Law Symposium is used as a source for mineral law articles by WESTLAW legal research service.
Professional Development Assistance
A law school should help its students and graduates achieve their career goals.
Tulsa's Office of Professional Development provides you with individual career counseling, while you are a student and after you graduate. Alumni share their experience and wisdom during career-oriented programs, sponsored by the Office of Professional Development. Under the guidance of the Office of Professional Development, you may attend fall and spring on-campus interviews, have your résumé updated, and be informed of regional and national job fairs.
