Basic Information

The University of Oklahoma College of Law is hitting its stride. It is one of the top best value law schools in the nation, thanks to a strong employment rate, impressive bar pass rate and affordable tuition. 

Based in Norman, a quintessential college town, the school has pushed forward with new, innovative courses in recent years and strengthened its recruitment efforts. Its employment rate was 93.59 percent for the Class of 2017, and its ultimate bar pass rate was 97.3 percent for the Class of 2015. Tuition is an affordable $20,903 for residents. 

The law school also received an A-minus for preLaw’s ranking of Best Facilities.

The school has an award-winning moot court program, and excels in litigation, business law and international law. 

Oklahoma has pushed for more hands-on, real-life training in recent years. For instance, one course focuses on the legal and business aspects of how to drill a well. It goes from the very start — acquiring the land — and includes the handling of thorny issues such as the regulatory process, the creation of pipelines, the use of underground storage. 

The school focuses on putting students in the real world, to connect with real people. It has an International Human Rights Clinic, where students study the condition of native people in developing countries, he said. Students are also strongly encouraged to participate in pro bono work.
