Basic Information

The University of Tulsa College of Law has the smallest enrollment of all the region’s law schools. So if you prize personal attention, here you’ll find it. The faculty-to-student ratio is 10.54 to 1, the second lowest in the region.

The law school consistently makes the PreLaw magazine list of Best Value Law Schools and received a A- in the overall ranking in 2016. After slashing tuition by 35 percent to $24,600 for the entering class of 2017, TU Law is among the nation's most affordable private law schools.

The school’s most significant innovation is the Access to Legal Education Scholarship (ALES) program, she noted. Funded by alumni donations and the University, the ALES program awards an $18,000 annual scholarship to all first-year students who are residents of or who have graduated from a degree-granting institution from a 12-state region.

“With this scholarship, we are granting more students access to an exceptional and highly personalized legal education for less than the cost of attending other private and most public law schools in the region,” said Dean Janet K. Levit

The school also has a strong employment rate at 78.4 percent

“TU Law continues to make enormous strides in its experiential learning curriculum, clinical offerings, faculty resources, and job placement,” Levit said. “These initiatives compliment longstanding, renowned programs in Energy Law and Native American Law. Our law student faculty ratio creates a family-like, nurturing atmosphere that is optimal for learning and performance.”
