NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law is a Top 20 “Best Value” law school, according to National Jurist magazine. OU Law rose to 17th in the nation and is the only Oklahoma law school in the Top 20.
“At the OU College of Law, we are humbled by this recent accolade and proud of our students and alumni for their achievements,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “Together with other recent accolades, this newest honor underlines OU Law’s leadership in legal education,” Harroz said. “This good news follows a recent report that our graduates achieved a 90 percent first-time pass rate on the Bar Exam, the highest in Oklahoma,” he said. “OU Law will build on these successes by continuing to provide the highest quality legal education at a reasonable price for our students.”

While tuition is increasing at law schools across the country, OU Law has maintained its commitment to decreasing student debt loads by not increasing its tuition for the past three years.
Founded in 1909, the OU College of Law has small sections and class sizes that encourage a strong sense of community, accomplished faculty with international expertise and a state-of-the-art facility featuring multimedia study rooms, court rooms and classrooms equipped with the latest technology. As Oklahoma’s only public law school, OU Law is the academic home of more than 500 students enrolled in the juris doctor program, the John B. Turner Master of Laws program, the master of legal studies program and various dual degree programs.
