The Juris Doctor Program
OU Law offers future lawyers and leaders extensive opportunities to learn from faculty who have worked for Supreme Court justices, litigated constitutional law cases from trial courts to the high court, and written authoritative works in the field. In the first year, students take a survey course on the basic structure of our constitutional system and individual rights. Upper-level courses offer students deep dives into key areas of constitutional law as well as opportunities to engage in simulated constitutional litigation. Additionally, students may acquire invaluable hands-on experience through moot court competitions, externships with government agencies and civil rights organizations, and volunteer work with faculty engaged in pro bono litigation.
