TU Law to Present Native American Pre-Law Day

The University of Tulsa College of Law will host a Native American Pre-Law Day and Native American Justice Powwow on Saturday, Feb. 24.

Both events will take place on the TU campus and are made possible through a grant from the Law School Admission Council and co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Indian Bar Association, Oklahoma City University School of Law and the University of Oklahoma College of Law.

The Native American Pre-Law Day is free and open to American Indian high school students, College students and College graduates interested in law school. “Given the national prominence of our Native American Law Center, we are particularly honored to host this event,” said TU Law Dean Robert Butkin. “Many prominent Native American law graduates will be available to discuss their professional careers and backgrounds with these potential law students.”

Additionally, representatives from the three law schools will be on site to provide information about how to apply to law school and how to finance a legal education. Current law students in the Native American law program at each law school will also be available to discuss their respective programs and what law school is like day-to-day.
The Native American Pre-Law Day will take place in John Rogers Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the Native American Justice Powwow will be held in the Mabee Gym from 2 p.m.-10 p.m. The Powwow is open to the public.
Space for the Pre-Law Day is limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis. For registrants outside an easy driving distance to Tulsa, a limited number of travel scholarships are available. To register, call Kim Fryer at 918.631.5604 or email kim-fryer@utulsa.edu.
