Every law school has a distinctive set of services and timelines unique to their institution for providing reciprocal services. Students wishing to seek reciprocity at another law school or in another region should research the school(s) reciprocity policy for eligibility, services and timelines to determine which school best fits your needs. Many schools have policies that do not permit the use of more than one school in the region.

Mentors Make all the Difference
TU Law students are jumping at the opportunity to be matched with professional mentors through the law school's mentoring program, which pairs current students with attorneys and judges. It is a joint endeavor of the TU Law Alumni Association and the TU College of Law Offices of Alumni Relations and Professional Development.
Students become eligible for the program after their first semester, which means that every year there are more than140 candidates. The program fosters relationships between law students and legal professionals, providing students with an insider's view of legal practice as well as networking opportunities within their area of legal interest.
Mentoring offers TU Law alumni, in Tulsa and across the country, a unique opportunity to remain involved in the law school. There is no minimum time requirement and the school provides supportive resources, such as planned events and mentoring tips. Alumni who serve as mentors make an important contribution to their alma mater and add real value to the student experience.
Speed Networking Expands Professional Connections
The TU College of Law now offers Speed Networking, an event at which law students network with a wide range of Tulsa-area legal professionals.
Dozens of law students and legal professionals participate in the two-hour networking opportunity. Much like speed dating, Speed Networking places law students across from legal professionals for short, timed conversations.
