TU Law Community
A law school is only as good as its faculty. Their knowledge must match their passion for teaching.
The faculty at The University of Tulsa College of Law are exceptional national and internationally recognized professors who are always accessible to their students. They specialize in areas as diverse as international trade, energy regulation, Native American tribal jurisdiction, trial tactics and bioethics, making them authorities in their fields.
- Professor Marguerite Chapman, medical law and bioethics specialist whose article on the rights of the terminally ill was cited by Chief Justice William Rehnquist in the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark "right-to-die" decision, Cruzan vs. Director, Missouri Department of Health; or
- Proffessor Marianne Blair, who authored groundbreaking articles on controversial adoption issues; or
- Proffessor Rex Zedalis, who explored the international legal issues raised by the Kuwaiti oil fires following Operation Desert Storm; or

A law school must care about its students. At TU College of Law, students come first.
Small classes and individual attention are the norm here. Our faculty have a true open-door policy, allowing students the real opportunity of getting to know them.
