Today, I would like to tell everyone about the wonderful staff (aka the Golden Girls) that will be assisting you with the admissions process for the University of Tulsa College of Law. They are a wonderful group of ladies that are happy to assist prospective and current students in any way possible! The main contacts that most students will interact with are Janet, April, Monique and Megan. Below, I will be detailing their specific roles and backgrounds in an attempt to help you direct your questions to the appropriate person.

It has been a long time since I last blogged, but I have finally come down from the Rocky Mountains to tell everyone about my internship at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. Over the summer, I worked in the Land department in Anadarko’s Denver office. Here is a picture of our view from the 18th floor of the tower (I miss seeing the mountains everyday).
I was assigned to work in the Powder River Basin Asset group, but I was also able to work with the Exploration group too. I was tasked with a variety of projects that ranged from debt collection, drafting a wellbore assignment, managing a joint development agreement and researching state law.

One of my professors is a firm believe that there is no such thing as “the law.” The rationale is that there is no set law—it is ever-changing. What was once the law or majority opinion can be overruled and the minority opinion may become the new law.

Yay for my last year of school! This year comes with usual nerves about beginning a new semester but now it is also about finishing my last year, winning mock trial competitions, passing the bar and getting a J-O-B. While I am anxious about all that is to come, as anything comes to an end there is also a time for reflection. So, here are a few things to consider as you embark on the law school admissions process.
When I began the process of applying to law school one of the most important considerations was service—customer service—with a background in the service industry, bad service is a deal breaker for me. I can honestly say that from my first interaction with the admissions staff I have had amazing service from the faculty, staff and administration.

I’m officially signing off. It is time to go into the deep, dark, hole where sweatshirts, yoga pants, tennis shoes, and hats live.
This year has been crazy-busy but also exciting and rewarding. I worked, competed in a regional and national mock trial competition, studied, laughed, cried, screamed and experienced any other emotion you can think of.

It is fair to say much of your academic life in law school will center on your courses. The classes you take are the vehicle for teaching you the law and how to understand it. Administrators spend great time crafting academic schedules of offered courses each semester. Professors take great care in constructing the particular classes they teach. Both the administrators and the professors focus a lot of attention to the details of the academic curriculum they offer and teach. As a consequence, you stand to be challenged—to your ultimate betterment—from your legal education at the University of Tulsa College Of Law.

I will graduate from law school in roughly 45 days. I have been sitting at this computer for 15 minutes trying to figure out what to write about. I am virtually unable to think about anything other than graduation, but in the recesses of my mind I know I have a choice.
Choice – “the power of choosing” and “a grade of meat between prime and good” – Merriam-Webster

You may have heard this already, but it bears repeating. One of the most important goals of your legal education should be to improve your legal writing skills.
I came to law school feeling fairly confident in my writing abilities. I have always enjoyed writing and I had the benefit of learning from excellent writing professors and teachers throughout my education. I have even been told that I am a good writer. Ok, that was mostly from my mom. But when I started law school, I discovered that I was not as prepared as I thought I was.

So, there is s song that has inspired this week’s post. Hopefully, if you know it you won’t judge me for using it– I really only know two or three lines. The reason it has been inspiring is because, as the song says we “started from the bottom now we’re here.”

Two weeks ago, I attended the Winter Meeting for the North American Prospect Expo (NAPE) in Houston, Texas. Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (Anadarko), my summer employer, was gracious enough to send me there to learn more about Anadarko and the oil and gas industry. For those who are unaware, NAPE is the world’s largest exploration and production expo that spans several days.
